New Jersey Turnpike Tailgating Lawyers

NJ Turnpike Traffic Attorney Represents Clients Ticketed for Tailgating

The New Jersey Turnpike is one of the most heavily used roadways in the country. Therefore, the Turnpike is closely watched for traffic violations by law enforcement. A common traffic violation that is strictly enforced is tailgating.

Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 39:4-89:

  • The driver of a vehicle shall not follow another vehicle more closely than is reasonable and prudent, having due regard to the speed of the preceding vehicle and the traffic upon, and condition of, the highway.
  • The driver of a motor truck when traveling upon a highway, outside of a business or residence district, shall not follow another motor truck within one hundred feet, but this shall not be construed to prevent one motor truck overtaking and passing another.

If you receive a ticket for tailgating on the New Jersey Turnpike, it is important to consult with a lawyer who is familiar with the laws and issues relevant to traffic violations in New Jersey. These penalties may include increased insurance costs and substantial fines.
