New pedestrian law could cost drivers
A new law is being implemented in New Jersey, and drivers might be forced to pay up.
Currently, if drivers don?t yield to pedestrians they could face a $100 fine. Under the new law, fines are doubled. If a pedestrian steps into a crosswalk and a driver doesn?t make a complete stop, the driver could face a $200 fine. Drivers will also have to face court fees and four points on their driver?s license.
Thursday in Hackensack, police were out to make sure that drivers were aware of the new law.
