The motor vehicle laws of New Jersey continue to change on a rapid basis. Many new laws have been passed by the New Jersey State Legislature with the goal of protecting those that visit the Garden State, and the Jersey Shore in particular. It is very common for those that visit the Jersey Shore to be pulled over for a motor vehicle violation that they had no prior knowledge of. For example, you now have to stop for pedestrians and wait until they have crossed the road before proceeding or face a fine, motor vehicle points, community service and possibly jail time if the pedestrian is injured.
