TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - New Jersey drivers would gain a bit of a reprieve from losing their license because of parking violations under a measure sent to Gov. Chris Christie.

The state Senate unanimously approved a bill Monday that would create a 30-day delay between when someone is notified they have failed to pay a parking fine and when they lose their license.

Current rules allow the state Motor Vehicle Commission to suspend a driver’s license or registration as soon as it’s notified of a missed fine or notice to appear in court.

The state Assembly previously approved the measure unanimously and it’s now up to the Republican governor whether to sign it into law.
