In addition to the above penalties for passing a school bus in New Jersey, the cost for insuring your car will
surge for the next three years. This innocent looking little ticket will cost you several thousands of dollars due
to the fact that your drivers license will be charged with 5 points.  You may not realize it but the offense of
Passing a School Bus has the same number of points as a Reckless Driving Ticket.  However, these 5 points
may be the cheapest part of the violation.  This is because, the motor vehicle commission of the State of NJ
may suspend your drivers license for a period of time as determined by the director.  The length and time of
your suspension is generally related to the amount of years you have been driving and your driving record.  In
general the less time you have been driving or the more tickets you have the longer the suspension.   If your
license is suspended due to a school bus ticket think of how you would go about your daily life.  You could
lose your job, your house and all that is important to you and your family!  Don't let this happen to you, we can

The statute of limitations (the time in which the state has to charge you with a ticket for passing a school bus)
is 90 days from the date of the alleged incident.  Most ticket in NJ have a 30 day limitations, but this ticket is
one of the few exceptions.  This is because in many cases it may take more time for the police to determine
whether an offense has occurred. Many school buses today have camera's to find violators of this offense so it
is not uncommon today to have a ticket mailed to your house.  However, in most cases we have found that
people that are not stopped at the scene generally receive the ticket and court date within 45 days from the
date of the offense.

Passing a School Bus in NJ is a very serious offense for which you can
lose your drivers license, go to jail and even perform community service.
 
Jail is rare for first time offenders but if an accident occurred or your case
was egregious it is certainly possible.
  We understand that you may have
a hectic life and understand that sometimes good people make mistakes.  
Unfortunately the law does not take this into account.  Although you may
have stopped for hundreds of school buses in your life one mistake is all
that is needed to be penalized.  But you do not have to worry, with
Attorney H. Scott Aalsberg on your side you will have the experience of
over 25 years of winning, reducing or eliminating these penalties.  

The law states you cannot pass a school bus whenever it is discharging
or picking up children unless the roadway is separated by a divider thats
it.  Many people think its legal to pass a school bus if the children are on
the opposite side of the road.  WRONG!  Other people feel that its OK to
pass a school bus if the school bus is stopped for an extended period of
time.  WRONG!  In New Jersey you cannot pass a school bus anytime it
has its yellow or red flashing lights on no matter how long the bus is
stopped for.  Even if you see no children anywhere in the distance you
must still stop and wait.  The reasoning behind this is because the bus
driver may be required to wait for a child or to assist a disabled child on
the bus.  We understand that some clients tell us that the bus driver
waived at them to go.  This is not a defense in NJ you must stop and wait
until the school bus lights are off.  The bus driver is not a NJ law
enforcement officer.  Only a police or law enforcement officer can give you
an exception to the law to pass.
Why the Penalties for Passing A School Bus in
NJ are so severe and can result even in Jail?
Our children are considered our most valuable assets and thus
protecting them is the highest priority for our police.  Hundreds of school
children each year are injured as a result of motorists passing stopped
school buses.  Thus the legislature has made the penalties even when
no children are hurt very severe.  Therefore, an experienced and skilled
traffic lawyer is a must to make sure you have the best chance of
keeping your drivers license and not going to jail or performing
community service.   No Attorney can guarantee that you will stay out of
jail or not perform community service, but Attorney Aalsberg's 98%
