ASSEMBLY TRANSPORTATION AND COMMUNICATIONS COMMITTEE
ASSEMBLY, No. 2367
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: MARCH 3, 1997
The Assembly Transportation and Communications Committee reports favorably Assembly Bill No. 2367.
This bill amends the statute that reduces by two the number of motor vehicle points assessed against a driver's record by the Division of Motor Vehicles for the completion of an approved motor vehicle defensive driving course. Current law allows a point reduction, after completion of an approved motor vehicle defensive driving course, only once every five years. This bill would allow such a reduction once every three years. In so doing, the bill makes this provision similar to P.L.1995, c. 308 (C.17:33B-45.1), which requires private passenger automobile insurers to reduce insurance rates for insureds for a three-year period after completion of such a course.
