"Driving Wrong Way, N.J.S.A. 39:4-85.1"

Defendant commits the offense of driving wrong way when he or she travels the wrong way on a one way street.

Upon conviction of traveling the wrong way on a one way street in New Brunswick, New Jersey, for instance, the defendant will be assessed two motor vehicle and two insurance points.


Placement of a one way sign without proper authorization constitutes the first line of defense mounted by a NJ Traffic lawyer in wrong way on one way street prosecutions.

Accordingly whether or not the sign was authorized by ordinance, resolution or regulation is investigated by a New Jersey Traffic attorney.


A good alternative plea is pleading guilty to obstructing traffic N.J.S.A 39:4-67.

If the prosecutor in Woodbridge, New Jersey, for instance, does not grant that request then unsafe driving N.J.S.A 39:4-97.2 should be considered, although it should be noted that unsafe driving carries an approximate fine of $400.

Additionally, four points are assessed on one's driving record for a third unsafe driving conviction within five years of a second unsafe driving conviction.
