This past Friday I received a ticket for moving over too early at an intersection to turn right.

Details here:

I admit I was in the wrong here. My issue is that I think a 4 point ticket is a little egregious. Looking at the State of NJ moving violations chart, leaving the scene of an accident, driving on a sidewalk, and passing someone stopped for a pedestrian in a crosswalk are all 2 points. Those all seem far worse than what I did, at least to me.

So, the question is, what would you do Oppo? Should I get a traffic lawyer? I’m willing to pay a fine, as I was guilty of moving over prematurely. I just don’t feel as though the points on the ticket really coincide with the offense.
