Atlantic County, NJ Police Cracking Down on Distracted Driving

Posted on July 13, 2012

As a result of the significant number of accidents and deaths due to distracted driving, Atlantic County police are cracking down on cell phone use in cars. Even if one is using a speakerphone, the Department of Transportation says those using cell phones are four times more likely to get into crashes that could cause serious injury. While officers say they dislike giving out fines, they plan to stage an enforcement operation throughout Atlantic County in New Jersey.  A citation would cost offenders $130.  Police say such a program is necessary for the safety of all motorists. A cell phone message, Northfield police officers stressed, is not worth a life.
