Texting While Driving Is Against The Law In New Jersey
Talking or texting while driving is a primary offense in New Jersey. Despite the penalties that a driver can face if caught texting while driving, many drivers continue to do so. When a driver is texting, it takes his or her vision and cognition away from the road and the task of driving. In a split second, serious car crashes, truck accidents and other motor vehicle accidents can occur.
While texting and driving is a leading cause of distracted driving accidents, other distractions can also cause accidents. They include:
- Applying makeup/grooming
- Talking to passengers
- Attending to children
- Reading maps
- Using GPS and other navigation systems
- Adjusting a video, radio, CD or MP3
