My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: New Jersey
I was driving and a cop car had been following me for a minute or two. I then made a left turn and I was looking at my side mirror to see if the cop was still behind me and he was. I then looked up and noticed that I was going a little towards the left so I swerved to straighten the car back. He then pulled me over and I explained to him how I got nervous because he was behind me. He then said "you must have been doing something wrong if you were nervous" which is not true at all. A lot of people who aren't doing anything get nervous and mess up when a cop car is behind them. He then charged me with reckless driving. Also, I was not on a highway. I was on a local street and there were no people around and there were only parked cars. My 6 year old cousin was also in the car with me. My driving record is completely clean and I don't think it was fair that I was charged with reckless driving on my first offense and this adds 5 points to my license.
