Junior Member
:confused: What is the name of your state? NJ
I have a NJ Drivers Liscense
I recieved a ticket for -following too closely- in NY.

My question is would this violation be reported to the NJ DMV and subsequently to my insurance company?
I've read many of the stories on this site and it seems like there are mixed responses to this question because of the following:


Interstate Compacts

New Jersey belongs to two Interstate Compacts. Member states exchange information to ensure driver compliance with the law and that they receive penalties for violations.
The Nonresident Violator Compact
· includes 44 states* and the District of Columbia,
· assures nonresident motorists the same rights and privileges as resident motorists,
· requires drivers to fulfill the terms of traffic citations received in member states or face the possibility of license suspension in their home state,
· provides that nonresident drivers have due process protection and cannot be detained out -of -state.
*Alaska, California, Michigan, Montana, Oregon and Wisconsin are not members.
Note: The compact does not apply to parking or standing violations, highway weight limit violations, and violations of Hazmat transportation laws.

BUT the NY DMV states:
" The NYSDMV does not record out-of-state violations committed by NYS drivers in other jurisdictions".

so i dont know what to do
could someone please help me.
