jenrgw New Jersey Distracted Driving Law Enforcement Highlighted at National Summit

Earlier this week, the Department of Transportation convened the 2010 Distracted Driving Summit in Washington D.C.  The purpose of the summit was to address the problem of distracted driving in the United States.

As part of the summit, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) spoke about steps that individual states have taken to combat distracted driving in the past year.

One state that was highlighted was New Jersey.  Specifically, the executive director of the GHSA highlighted the fact that New Jersey issues about 10,000 tickets each month to violators of the ban on handheld cell phone use while driving and texting while driving.  A state developed initiative puts police officers on the street and in cruisers where they can see drivers who may be violating the law.

Enforcement of anti distracted driving laws is as important as developing the laws in the first place and is seen as a key measure in reducing the number of distracted driving injuries and fatalities.
