Trenton, NJ – New Jersey Gov. Jon S. Corzine has voluntarily paid a $46 fine for violating state law by not wearing a seat belt in his near-fatal car accident, his spokesman said Tuesday.
Spokesman Anthony Coley said Corzine met with State Police Superintendent Col. Rick Fuentes and Attorney General Stuart Rabner, as well as two state police investigators, for a half-hour Tuesday at the governor’s mansion in Princeton to discuss the accident.
As the meeting ended, Coley said Corzine asked Fuentes for a ticket. He said Fuentes wrote one and Corzine wrote a check for $46.
Coley said the check will be sent by overnight mail to a municipal court in Galloway, where the accident happened. [AP]
