My question involves a careless driving ticket from the State of: NJ
My wife was recently involved in an accident in Morristonw NJ. she was driving down a side street (no traffic lines painted but 2 way) The car in front of her put on it's right hand turn signal and got over to the right to make a right hand turn. My wife began to pass on the left to continue moving forward when the driver changed it's mind and cut the wheel back left causing my wife to hit the other drivers rear driver side door.
Is it illegal to pass in this instance?
