Proof that the defendant was operating a hand-held wireless telephone while driving a motor vehicle in violation of section 1 of P.L.2003, c.310 (C.39:4-97.3) may give rise to an inference that the defendant was driving recklessly.

(2)Assault by auto or vessel is a crime of the third degree if the person drives the vehicle while in violation of R.S.39:4-50 or section 2 of P.L.1981, c.512 (C.39:4-50.4a) and serious bodily injury results and is a crime of the fourth degree if the person drives the vehicle while in violation of R.S.39:4-50 or section 2 of P.L.1981, c.512 (C.39:4-50.4a) and bodily injury results.

It shall be no defense to a prosecution for a violation of subparagraph (a) or (b) of paragraph (3) of this subsection that the defendant was unaware that the prohibited conduct took place while on or within 1,000 feet of any school property or while driving through a school crossing. Nor shall it be a defense to a prosecution under subparagraph (a) or (b) of paragraph (3) of this subsection that no juveniles were present on the school property or crossing zone at the time of the offense or that the school was not in session.

(4)Assault by auto or vessel is a crime of the third degree if the person purposely drives a vehicle in an aggressive manner directed at another vehicle and serious bodily injury results and is a crime of the fourth degree if the person purposely drives a vehicle in an aggressive manner directed at another vehicle and bodily injury results.

e.(Deleted by amendment, P.L.2001, c.443).

f.A person who commits a simple assault as defined in paragraph (1), (2) or (3) of subsection a. of this section in the presence of a child under 16 years of age at a school or community sponsored youth sports event is guilty of a crime of the fourth degree. The defendant shall be strictly liable upon proof that the offense occurred, in fact, in the presence of a child under 16 years of age. It shall not be a defense that the defendant did not know that the child was present or reasonably believed that the child was 16 years of age or older. The provisions of this subsection shall not be construed to create any liability on the part of a participant in a youth sports event or to abrogate any immunity or defense available to a participant in a youth sports event. As used in this act, “school or community sponsored youth sports event” means a competition, practice or instructional event involving one or more interscholastic sports teams or youth sports teams organized pursuant to a nonprofit or similar charter or which are member teams in a youth league organized by or affiliated with a county or municipal recreation department and shall not include collegiate, semi-professional or professional sporting events.

We were more than pleased by the results obtained by the Shugar group. My sister went from a DUI plus 3 other citations down to basically Careless Driving. The fines were a fraction of what we expected and we definitely chose the right attorney to represent us. Cannot recommend them more highly.

I went to court today for 3 very serious driving violations that would have resulted in points and fines. However, the most serious charge was dismissed, and the other 2 tickets were downgraded and i received a small fee with no points. Im very happy with the outcome, and I highly recommended this law firm..Will definately use them again. Their rates was half of what other firms was charging me. Many thanks to Greg Shugar.😁

I am very greatful for Shugar Law Office. They did exactly what they said they would do over the phone. I didn't even have to go to court. My case got completely dismissed. I paid no fine and got no points. I am a commercial driver. If I got this ticket I would've lost my job. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who gets a ticket in New Jersey.

I received a ticket in the Holland tunnel that if I'd not called Shugar Law about would have resulted in points on my license, & higher insurance premiums, I emailed Shugar Law, gave them the ticket # , and they took it from there, I didn't have to do anything else, 6 weeks later the ticket was lowered to another charge , an $89 fine & NO POINTS ON MY LICENSE. Shugar Law saved me $$$ in insurance surcharges. I'd recommend them to any of my friends. If you receive a ticket for anything, do yourself a favor, call Shugar Law, they can help you,
