An Improper Passing Ticket is a common ticket issued by the New Jersey police. This statute basically says if you pass someone you must pass them on the Left. This statute is designed to prohibit a few things. Firstly, it is to prohibit the person who is weaving in and out of traffic passing people on the right. Secondly, it is to prohibit someone riding the shoulder (because there is traffic, etc) to get off at their exit. Thirdly, it is to prohibit the person from getting into a left turning lane too soon by crossing the “hash marks” (those yellow x marks on the road before a left turn).
