For fellow New Jersey drivers the rules just got a little tighter.. but in my mind as a good thing. Lt. Gov. Kim Guadagno signed into law that a driver who kills someone while using a handheld cell phone can now be charged with vehicular homicide. 

The website called NorthJersey.com recently put up an article titled "Tougher N.J. driver cellphone rules signed into law".  Here is an important snippet to read, "If a reckless driver kills someone, prosecutors can bring vehicular homicide charges. That crime is punishable by imprisonment of five to 10 years, a fine of up to $150,000, or both. Similarly, a reckless driver who injures someone can be brought up on assault by automobile charges. Assault by auto that results in serious injury is punishable by up to 18 months imprisonment, a fine of up to $10,000, or both".

I know that many people don't agree with laws that slowly keep pushing their way into their personal lives... but this law is meant to save lives. A ton of peole talk on cell phones while driving and it is incredibly dangerous. You probably don't think it is.. but that split second of being distracted could be the difference between life and death.

While typing this I remembered that we had done an older blog post about the dangers of driving and using cell phones. Give it a look over and just keep it in the back of your head when you are driving.
The Dangers of using cellphones while texting and driving.
