Gov. Chris Christie Signs Motorist Bill into Law

Last Edited:
TRENTON, N.J. -

Chris Christie has given drivers a bit of a reprieve from losing their license because of parking violations.

The Republican Governor signed the new law on Wednesday, May 11th, after it was approved by lawmakers in March.

The law creates a 30-day delay between when someone is notified they have failed to pay a parking fine and when they lose their license.

Previously, the State Motor Vehicle Commission was allowed to suspend a driver's license or registration as soon as it was notified of a missed fine or notice to appear in court.
