I Might have lightly bumped into a parked car while backing up my car. It was so light that I'm not even sure if I actually made contact. There was absolutely no damage. Not a thing. I waited around for a bit, but the owner didn't show. I wrote a note explaining what happened and left the owner my contact information, and I placed the note under the windshield. Then I eventually left.
If you left your contact information, then you should satisfy the goal of the statute. If a peoblem arises (unlikely), contact an attorney.
39:4-129. (a) The driver of any vehicle, knowingly involved in an accident resulting in injury or death to any person shall immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident or as close thereto as possible but shall then forthwith return to and in every event shall remain at the scene until he has fulfilled the requirements of subsection (c) of this section.
This is not a hit and run based on the statute.
If the NJ law is like California law, then you complied by leaving your information on the car.
if you received a ticket and left your contact information, i wouldnt worry to much just explain it to the prosecutor in whichever town you received the ticket. if you didnt receive ticket no worries.
