Third Offenders can Get No-Points after 5 years on 39:4-97.2 – Patel v. MVC

[11/10/09 – 10:00 am] This morning, the Supreme Court ruled that the provisions of NJSA 39:4-97.2 permit a driver to avoid points on a third or subsequent offense provided that five-years have passed since the prior offense. This would include a third offense that occurs more than 5-years after a second offense. The Court’s interpretation on third offenders reverses contrary dicta from the Appellate Division in this case.
