Understanding New Jersey’s new distracted driving law

New Jersey drivers probably are aware of the fact that it is illegal to talk to someone on a hand-held cellphone while driving and/or to send or receive a text message. Both of these activities are considered to be “primary offenses” in New Jersey. What drivers may not be aware of, however, is that other motorists can now turn them in for texting while driving. As reported by New Jersey 101.5, a new distracted driving law went into effect on July 27, 2017. Under this law, whenever anyone sees a motorist texting while driving, the observer is asked, but not required, to turn the culprit in to local law enforcement.

New Jersey workers’ comp - the basics

As a construction worker in Somerville, you know that you have a dangerous job. It barely seems like an entire week goes by without you hearing about a crane accident, trench collapse or some other construction site calamity. You might even know a few co-workers who have filed workers' compensation claims and received benefits. But, if you suffer a workplace injury, do you know enough about the process to ensure you receive the help you need?

What is distracted driving?

Whenever you drive on the streets, roads and highways of New Jersey, no one needs to tell you that distracted driving is a major problem today. You see evidence of it all around you, and you may be guilty of it yourself.

Construction workers and traumatic brain injuries

New Jersey construction workers often work in hazardous places such as on roofs, scaffolds, tall ladders and in and around cranes. Consequently, the risk of falling is higher for construction workers than it is for people working in other industries and environments.

What is a vicious dog?

If you are a New Jersey resident who has been bitten by a vicious dog, no one need tell you what a vicious dog is. You already know. He snarls; he growls; he lunges at you without warning; he attacks; he bites.

Necessary motorcycle gear

When New Jersey motorcyclists get on the road, they may not always think about safety. Safety is an important part of riding a motorcycle, though, and it is important for people to understand what kind of gear they need to protect themselves on the road.
