Citation: 7 N.J.A.R. 40
Decision Date: 1981
Agency: DIVISION OF MOTOR VEHICLES
Synopsis: The Division of Motor Vehicles proposed a suspension of respon- dent's driving privileges and after he requested a hearing, the matter was referred to an administrative law judge. The administrative law judge determined that N.J.S.A. 39:4-119 requires a motorist to come to a complete stop before entering or crossing an intersection and that implicit in the requirement is the obligation, after making a complete stop, to yield to all traffic on the intersecting street. The judge found that the respondent had improp- erly disregarded the requirement imposed upon him by the presence of a flashing red beacon since although he had come to a complete stop, he had failed to yield to an approaching vehicle. Accordingly, the administrative law judge ordered that respon- dent's driving privileges be suspended for a period of one year. Upon review, the Division of Motor Vehicles accepted the administrative law judge's initial decision. Frederick S.
