39:4-56.1. Willfully causing vehicle to become disabled; abandonment of vehicle upon public highway (a) No person shall operate a vehicle upon the public highways, bridges or tunnels of this State or upon any highways, bridges or tunnels in this State operated by any authority of this State or by any authority created jointly by this State and any other State in such a manner as to willfully cause such vehicle to become disabled, by reason of lack of fuel or otherwise, for the purpose of interfering with or obstructing the passage of other vehicles.

(b) No person shall willfully abandon a vehicle upon the public highways, bridges or tunnels of this State, or upon any highways, bridges or tunnels in this State operated by any authority of this State or by any authority created jointly by this State and any other State for the purpose of interfering with or obstructing the passage of other vehicles.

L.1964, c. 18, s. 1. 39:4-56.2. Violations; penalties Any person who has been convicted of a violation of this act shall be subject, for a first offense, to a fine of not less than $200.00 nor more than $500.00 and shall have his license to operate a motor vehicle suspended for a period of not less than 1 year nor more than 5 years. For a subsequent violation, he shall be fined not less than $500.00 nor more than $1,000.00 and shall have his license to operate a motor vehicle suspended for 5 years from the date of his conviction. In fixing the penalty to be imposed, the magistrate shall give consideration to the hazard to the public safety and the public inconvenience created by the conduct of such person.

L.1964, c. 18, s. 2.

39:4-56.3. Suspension of registration The registration of any motor vehicle which is used by any person in violation of section 1 of this act shall be suspended for not less than 90 days nor more than 1 year unless the owner thereof can demonstrate to the satisfaction of the Director of Motor Vehicles that said vehicle was used in such a manner without his knowledge and consent. In fixing the period of suspension, the director shall give consideration to the threat to public safety and the public inconvenience caused by the use of said vehicle.

L.1964, c. 18, s. 3.

39:4-56.4. Legislative findings and declarations The Legislature finds and declares that a serious threat to the health, safety and welfare of the people of this State may be presented by any concerted effort, plan or demonstration involving the use and operation of vehicles in such a way as to impede, hamper, stall and interfere with the ordinary progress of vehicular traffic on, in and through the roads, highways and bridges of the State. Because of the special road hazards, with consequent danger to the lives and property of the people of this State, and economic loss which would inevitably flow from any such course of conduct, the Legislature determines that the penalties and sanctions provided by this act shall be applicable under such circumstances.

L.1964, c. 18, s. 4.
