39:4–128.1 Improper passing of school bus (5 POINTS)

A driver on a highway passing school bus used solely for the transportation of children to and from school, any school activity, or summer day camp must stop not less than 25 feet from the bus when the bus has stopped to receive or discharge any passengers.

The driver, in a town like South Brunswick, New Jersey, for instance, may not proceed until all children have entered the bus or have exited and reached the side of the highway, or until the flashing red lights have stopped.

For this statute to apply, the bus must be designated as a school bus by a sign on the front and rear of the bus in lettering at least 4 inches high.

Drivers on the opposite side from a bus on a roadway divided by a safety island or physical traffic separation do not have to stop for a school bus.

Such drivers, however, must reduce the speed of their vehicles to not more than 10 miles an hour, and may not resume normal speed until their vehicles passed the bus and any child who may have exited from the bus.

When the bus is parked at the curb to receive children directly from a school, school activity, or day camp, or to discharge children to the school, school activity or day camp, and the bus is parked on the same side of the street where the school or activity is located, drivers need not stop.

However, they may not travel at a speed in excess of 10 miles per hour.

There is an inference that the registered owner of the vehicle involved in the violation of this statute was the same person who committed the act.


Defendant convicted of this offense is subject to a minimum fine of $100, 15 days in jail or 15 days of community service.

For a second or subsequent offense the defendant must pay a fine of at least $250 and be sentenced up to 15 days in jail.

If the sentencing Judge finds that the violation was willful defendant may lose his or her license for a period of time left to the discretion of the Judge.

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,
