Jersey Drivers Need Lawyers

This will be very true if legislation proposed by New Jersey State Senator (and former interim governor) Richard Codey is passed.

Codey wants drivers to have their drivers' licenses suspended after their third cell phone infraction (driving while talking, without a hands-free device) within a ten year period. The fines ($100 to $250 to $500 for the third offense) are not terribly disproportionate to the offense, but they also fail to deter. Hence, the draconian license suspension threat.

Never mind that accidents are properly attributable to a variety of other driver distractions like the radio, beverage spills, people watching, daydreaming, drowsiness, and that standard but little documented cause: Dumb or uncoordinated Jersey drivers who never would have passed the New York City road test.

Given the importance of driving in a suburban state, this is sure to increase the use of lawyers -- like me -- to fight such infractions.
