Ticket for Cell Phone Use While Driving | Suspensions
As an experienced New Jersey criminal defense attorney, I am often asked about cell phone violations. New Jersey has recently changed their rules on cell phones and has actually put in place a much more stringent, tiered penalty structure.
They’ve increased the penalties on a first offense, they’ve increased the penalties on a second offense, and they’ve increased the penalties on third offenses. The amount that the fines have increased and also the potential of having your driving privileges suspended on a third offense has also come into play. It’s as much as a 90-day suspension on a third offense.
Ticket for Cell Phone Use While Driving | Out-of-State Drivers
What you also need to know is that an out of state conviction for driving while using a cell phone improperly can be imported and enhance your potential penalties. I’ve handled cases like this before and I recommend that you speak to me or some other attorney about this charge.
