NJSA 39:4-85.1, Wrong Way on a One Way Street

Driving the wrong way down a one way street is a two point moving violation and carries a fine of up to $200. A paramount consideration with this type of motor vehicle offense is whether the signage was clearly and properly posted, with the authority to do so.
