Assessment now $6 per ticket for Title 39 Violations

As a service to the bar, muni-mail would like to remind its subscribers that for traffic offenses under Title 39 occurring on or after July 1, 2004, there must now be a $6 assessment added to every fine or penalty. See N.J.S.A. 39:5-41(d) through (h).

The previous assessment of $5 was increased to provide funding for the “New Jersey Brain Injury Research Fund.”

Thus, for example, the correct fine for a first offense driving on the revoked list charge under N.J.S.A. 39:3-40 occurring on or after July 1, 2004 should be $506, which includes a $500 fine and an additional $6 assessment.
