Additional $1 added to fines effective today – N.J.S.A. 39:5-41(g)

Effective today, an additional $1 must be added to the amount of any fine or penalty imposed upon a conviction for any offense under Title 39. This brings the total amount of assessments that must be added to every fine or penalty for Title 39 offenses occurring on or after today’s date to $5.

Thus, for example, driving on the revoked list (without enhancements) for a first offense should be given a fine of $505. ($500 + $5).

The funding for the various assessments is set forth under N.J.S.A. 39:5-41(d) through (h).

The additional $1 going into effect today has already been included in the Statewide Violations Schd, which will not change.

Finally, please note that another $1 will be assessed beginning later this year to pay for brain injury research. The total assessment will then be $6.
