SUBJECT: Medical Exemption—New Jersey

Legislation was passed during the 2000 session that was effective February 1, 2001. It is a medical exemption that is most cumbersome and unusual.

The legislation directs the Director of Motor Vehicles to promulgate rules and regulations for implementation and mandates the following as a minimum:

Standards and specifications to govern the types of materials and products that may be applied will reference the color, reflectance, light transmission, and ultraviolet transmittance.
The issuance of a card or certificate to the applicant that shall be valid for 48 months.
Standards and specifications to govern the installation and application to include a label to identify the installer and manufacturer.
The registration of persons in the business of installing or applying the approved materials that require a $50 registration fee. Renewal is required each two years for a fee of $100.
Anyone violating items 3 and 4 shall be subject to a fine not to exceed $1,000.00 for the first offense and $5,000.00 for a second or subsequent offense.

A copy of the amendment is attached. Anyone needing an application or further information should contact:
