I was stopped at a traffic light, I turned on my phone to check directions and a cop saw me.
If your New Jersey driver and it's a moving violation in the state that you got it in, then it'll come to New Jersey as two points. If you are a CDL driver it can be treated differently, if so I suggest a consultation with a traffic ticket lawyer that is familiar with the CDL federal regulations. Expect to pay a fee for the advice but it may be well worth it for you as they say in life you get what you pay for and free advice is generally worth the amount you paid.
This is an odd situation and I do not know for sure. NJ Administrative Code assesses 2 points for any out of State moving violation. In NY I think it is 5 points but only 2 would come over. But in NJ such a violation is 0 points. I do not know if NJ considers this a moving violation or does not assess points because our statute is 0 points. Many have asked this, no one seems to know. Worst case is 2 points. But speak to a NY attorney about reducing or defending the charge or downgrading to a definite non-moving violation. All this may make no difference to your insurance company. Check that too..
