The New Jersey traffic statute for improper u-turn provides:
The driver of a vehicle shall not turn such vehicle around so as to proceed in the opposite direction upon any curve or upon the approach to or near the crest of a grade or at any place upon a highway as defined in R.S. 39:1-1 where the view of such vehicle is obstructed within a distance of 500 feet along the highway in either direction; and no such vehicle shall be turned around so as to proceed in the opposite direction on a highway which shall be conspicuously marked with signs stating “no U turn.”
This offense carries a total of 3 points, if convicted. If you have received a ticket for improper u-turn, you may be able to minimize your points exposure with an experienced traffic court lawyer on your side. A lawyer can explain your rights and options and minimize your exposure to points and increased insurance premiums.
