Unsafe Driving Bill passed by NJ Senate

Bill Would Make Unsafe-Driving Option Available to Repeat Offenders

The N.J. Law Journal reports

The state Senate approved a bill on Monday that would make the unsafe driving statute more available as a zero-point alternative to speeding and other motor vehicle offenses — even for those with prior convictions.

The measure, S-248, would clarify that N.J.S.A. 39:4-97.2 does not allow assessment of points on a third offender as long as at least five years have elapsed since the second offense. After that, points would be assessed “if the subsequent offense occurs within five years of a third violation, or, if the person has more than three violations, within five years of the immediately preceding violation.”

As now in effect, the statute lumps a third offense “or subsequent” offense together, and dictates that points “shall be assessed” in those situations.
