Distracted Drivers Put Everyone on the Road in Danger

Distracted driving accidents are becoming more and more common in New Jersey and across the nation. Why? Cellphones and other handheld devices. That is why it was enacted in to law in our state that driving while operating a handheld device is illegal. In addition, driving while texting is specifically banned. Some studies have shown that texting and driving is almost as bad or in some cases worse than drunk driving. It is no surprise then when serious and even fatal motor vehicle accidents result.
