NJ Bill #1329 states, "The driver of a vehicle must stop and stay stopped for a pedestrian crossing the roadway within any marked crosswalk, but shall yield the right-of-way to a pedestrian crossing the roadway within an unmarked crosswalk." There is a risk of a $200 fine along with 15 days of community service and at least two points, not to mention an increase in your insurance rates if this law is violated. The new law requires you to stop and stay stopped, while the old law stated simply that you must yield. Hope this clears up the confusion.

You had better put some pep in your step if you expect me to stay stopped. I refuse to stay stopped for people who take their grand ole time crossing at these crosswalks. If you're foot dragging, once you're clear of my lane, I'm gone. Write me tickets, I'll tell the judge the same thing. Lets also point out that this law does not apply to bicyclists. Bicyclists must abide by the motor vehicle laws!
