5.30D Violation Of Traffic Act

In this case, in support of the charge of negligence made, it is asserted that the defendant violated a provision of the motor vehicle laws. The provision referred to is known as N.J.S.A. ________ and reads as follows: ________ The statute in question has set up a standard of conduct for the users of our streets and highways. If you find that the defendant has violated that standard of conduct, such violation is evidence to be considered by you in determining whether negligence, as I have defined that term to you, has been established. You may find that such violation constituted negligence on the part of the defendant, or you may find that it did not constitute such negligence. Your finding on this issue may be based on such violation alone, but in the event that there is other or additional evidence bearing upon that issue, you will consider such violation together with all such additional evidence in arriving at your ultimate decision as to defendant’s negligence.

Now the statute in question has set up a standard of conduct for the users of our streets and highways. If you find that the defendant has violated that standard of conduct, such violation is evidence to be considered by you in determining whether negligence, as I have defined that term to you, has been established. You may find that such violation constituted negligence on the part of the defendant, or you may find that it did not constitute such negligence. Your finding on this issue may be based on such violation alone, but in the event that there is other or additional evidence bearing upon that issue, you will consider such violation together with all such additional evidence in arriving at your ultimate decision as to defendant’s negligence.
