described below possible other penalties.
In New Jersey It is the general rule that you must make your intent known by using your right or left signal at
least 100 feet prior to turning or switching lanes. If you fail to do this you will be facing two points on your
drivers license and a ticket for failure to signal a turn. If an accident happened and mandatory court
appearance is checked on your ticket In addition, to the two points you could also receive up to 15 days in
jail. (note that unless your offense involves an accident with serious injury it is very rare, but possible for a
judge to impose jail).
The Points associated with this ticket can cost you dearly on your insurance. Each point on your license
will increase your insurance rates on average $600 - $1200 per year for 3 years. For Insurance purposes it
takes 3 years from the date of your violation/conviction for the points to be eliminated off your insurance.

be much less than most insurance companies charge in just the first year.
