NJ needs speed cameras — NJ Top News
Here are the top New Jersey news stories for Wednesday:
New Jersey falls way short with maximizing safety on its roadways, according to a report released Tuesday by a national nonprofit.
The Garden State earns a "caution" ranking in the 2024 Roadmap to Safety report from Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety, for failing to have a number of the group's recommended laws on its books.
Just six states managed to have enough laws in place to earn a "good" rating in the report. New Jersey is one of 34 states in the second tier, for gaps in "recommended optimal laws."
Under Title 39, the section of New Jersey Law dealing with motor vehicles, there is a long list of requirements regarding vehicle illumination.
If you violate the rules, you could be hit with a costly ticket.
Here is how to avoid getting cited, and possibly how to get out of cops writing you that ticket.
