Jersey cops suck....

ok so i was driving back to my girlfriend's house saturday night after we went to seaside heights for the night.im not familiar with that area because im from new york so i took my girl's dads garmin. that thing got me a little lost so im tryin to help my girl fix it and before i know it i see the lights flashing in my rearview mirror. the street was very wide and looked like a 2 way so i was about to pull over to the left but at the last second decided to pull over to the right to be safe. so he comes to my window and does the usual routine and tells me i was goin 45 in a 35. i told him im not from the are and he responds with "neither am i" WTF?!?! he ot only gave me a ticket for the 45 in a 35 but also for "swerving" ( i dont remember the exact term he used) when i wasnt sure if it was a 2 way or a one way. anyway i was wondering that bc i have a NY license does my insurance hear about it if i just pay the fine? i know for a fact that the points dont tranfer to my license itself but im not sure about the insurance ( i have allstate btw) should i fight it? what d you guys think?

thanx guys

NY/NJ are linked bro you have to go to Seaside Court unfortunately and speak to the prosecuter. I've been there 4-5 times myself its not a fun place to be and sometimes they keep your ass there all day but bottomline you'll pay the fines and not get points!!

wtf...thats a bullshit story from the cop if I ever heard one..you didnt know if it was a one way or not, so I would have pulled over to the right anyways.

You are from out of town..thats why he bagged on you. You dont influence his job next year, thats why...I get bothered by Fort Lee all the time, but they can do nothing. I just get hit with parking tickets (overnight, have to be a resident) cuse I dont do anything illegal.

Being friends with ALL Troopers and Cops in jersey. My friends are all the cool ones though. The best thing to do is go the court and speak to the prosecutor. Do not take a lawyer. Be honest to the Prosecutor, adn if you havent gotten any points in last 2 years for the same offense, chances are they will downgrade and charge ou $194, and maybe failure to wear a seatbelt or somthing.

GOOD LUCK!!

failure for seatbelt is just as bad as points..the insurance company will get wind of that and you will be paying for it for the next 3 years.

If you go to court and talk to the prosecutor he might even get it dropped down to unsafe driving which is no points and just a fine.
