The motor vehicle offense of racing on the roadway is a five (5) point motor vehicle violation. Five points on your New Jersey driver’s license could have unforeseen and far reaching consequences. License suspension, surcharges, insurance rate increases, etc., are just a few possible consequences. A conviction of racing on a highway (roadway) carries with it a fine of up to $100 (first offense) and up to $200 for a subsequent conviction. More importantly, it is not uncommon for a municipal court judge to impose a license suspension if convicted of this traffic infraction.
