Careless driving (N.J.S.A. 39:4-97) is often an umbrella charge that captures a wide range of bad driving. Whether that driving was actually dangerous or not is up to the discretion of the police officer. Should he charge you with careless driving, though, it could cost you $200 in fine and surcharges and even up to 15 days in jail.
