U-Drive, U-Text, U-Pay Campaign
Although the Palisades Interstate Parkway Police Department issues summonses for this violation routinely, we are proud to participate in this campaign’s purpose. U-Drive, U-Text, U-Pay focuses on violations of the New Jersey Cell Phone Statute 39:4-97.3. A common misconception is that this statute only applies to talking on the cell phone when placed to the ear however in New Jersey, any use of the cell phone with your hands is illegal. This includes answering, texting, using as a GPS, or any other function where the hands are removed from the vehicle’s operation to use the phone.
