Vehicle owners should be aware of potential recalls

Motor vehicles are involved in countless injuries and fatalities across the country each year. Most are due to driver error, adverse weather or poor road conditions. However, some accidents are caused by a fault in a vehicle, whether it was a defect in manufacturing affecting a small number of cars or a major defect that could potentially injure dozens or hundreds of people. It is important for drivers in New Jersey to stay updated on recalls involving their vehicles.

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.

How you can help your accident case before it goes to court

Basically, if there is a chance that the other driver may be liable, the insurer wants to know about it.
