New Jersey - A new law is in effect today. If you are driving you'd better not have a cell phone or other electronic gadgets in your hand. Today was the first day New Jersey's toughened cell phone driving law was being enforced.

As of Saturday, using a handheld device while driving is no longer a secondary offense, cited only if stopped for something else. It is now a primary offense, which means police can stop motorists simply, solely for a cell phone violation. The fine for violating New Jersey's cell phone law is $100.

There were more than 3,500 cell phone related crashes in New Jersey in 2006, 11 of them fatal. [abc]
