Bergen County Cell Phone Violation Attorney
Defending clients facing NJ cell phone tickets
Driving while using electronic devices without the assistance of hands-free technology is against the law in New Jersey. Cell phones are an integral part of our lives because they have become powerful pieces of technology. Cell phones have the ability to not only make calls, they can email, text, direct you to locations, play video games, surf the internet and much more. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, when people use cell phones without the assistance of hands-free technology, they are 6 times more dangerous than those who drive under the influence of alcohol. In response to these studies, law enforcement has taken a harder stance against illegal cell phone use on the roads of New Jersey. When a person is caught using a cell phone unlawfully, they may be issued a ticket for a cell phone violation. These tickets come with significant financial consequences and the possibility of points to your driving record.
