Talking on your Cell while Driving — That Blinking Red light’s for You


It’s already illegal in New Jersey to use a hand-held cell phone while driving. However, on March 1, the law finally gets the teeth it needs to mean something. Beginning that day, police will be allowed to pull over a driver just for talking on a hand-held cell phone. Currently, an officer can issue a ticket for using a cell phone while driving, but cannot pull someone over just for that offense.

Also beginning March 1, it will be illegal to text message while driving in New Jersey.
