New Jersey Senate Panel OKs Stricter Ban on Cell Phones

February 28, 2006

TRENTON, NJ – New Jersey’s Senate Law and Public Safety and Veterans’ Affairs Committee unanimously endorsed measure S1099 Feb. 6 to permit police to pull over drivers solely for using a cell phone while driving, according to LandLine magazine. Currently, drivers can only be cited for using a hand-held phone when they are stopped for another offense, such as speeding. If approved by the full Senate, the measure would head to the state’s House for further consideration.The measure also includes languages that prohibit drivers in the state from engaging in any activity not related to the operation of the vehicle “in a manner that interferes with the safe operation of the vehicle.” Sen. Joseph Palaia (R-Monmouth), a sponsor of the New Jersey bill, said the measure could generate $10 million to $25 million a year in fines, according to the report.
