Illegal U-Turn Ticket in NJ
New Jersey laws prohibit drivers from making a U-turn at any section of a highway where there is a conspicuous “No U-turns” sign. You can also be charged with an improper u-turn if you turned the vehicle around to proceed in the opposite direction on a highway where you cannot clearly see 500 feet in front of and behind you.
Pleading guilty to an illegal U-turn ticket in New Jersey can result in a fine of $85, or $140 if you made the turn in a construction zone. Although the fine seems insignificant, do not be tempted to just pay it because it carries other implications. Pleading guilty (paying the ticket) to this offense earns you points on your driving record, 12 or more points accumulated will result in you losing your license. This is the reason you should reach out for help from The Law Office of Benjamin Friedman.

If convicted of traffic violations your insurance company will add 3 points to your “insurance eligibility points” resulting in higher insurance premiums. If you receive 7 or more “insurance eligibility points” points, you will not be eligible to obtain automobile insurance on the voluntary market. Instead, you’ll have to pay more to get at-risk coverage through the New Jersey Personal Automobile Insurance Plan (NJPAIP).
