Failure To Yield
East Brunswick, NJ, Failure To Yield Attorney
Pedestrian crossings can be tricky in East Brunswick, N.J. For starters, they are not always easy to see or to predict if a pedestrian is trying to cross in a given moment. Unfortunately for New Jersey drivers, the police almost always assume a driver and not the pedestrian is the one in the wrong.
East Brunswick is notorious for ticketing drivers for a violation of NJSA 38 4-35, more commonly known as failure to yield to a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Summed up: It is a crime to fail to yield to a pedestrian in a marked crosswalk or within an unmarked crosswalk at an intersection in East Brunswick (and all of New Jersey, for that matter). In plain English, that means: If you are not completely stopped behind the line or intersection when a pedestrian is trying to cross, a police officer will ticket you for this offense.
If a driver is found guilty of this traffic violation, they will receive a fine of $54 as well as two points on their driving record. Of course, drivers who already have points on their record may also be dealing with a license suspension as a result of this unwelcome ticket. Because this offense is based on observation, there are viable defenses to a New Jersey failure to yield in a crosswalk charge. Important questions to ask in these cases include:
- Where was the officer situated in relation to the crosswalk and the ticketed car?
- What type of crosswalk was the pedestrian crossing at the time?
- Were there any witnesses?
