Cell phones have become such a huge part of peoples’ lives. When once a cell phone could only make calls, it seems like cell phones can do almost anything that can be done on a computer. Cell phones can make calls, send and receive emails and text messages, surf the web, help the driver navigate and much more. As the abilities of our cell phones increase, people have been using their phones while they drive at an alarming rate. When people use their cell phones while driving, it puts everyone in danger.
It is illegal to drive without a license in our country and New Jersey is no exception. Having a license suspended, revoked or never having one at all bars you from being able to operate a motor vehicle. Most people without a valid license will follow the law and not drive. When a person is caught driving without a license, they face a large fine and the possibility of jail time. It is important to contact an attorney to discuss your matter. It is also important to note that courts are a bit more lenient towards those who have never had a license than those who willfully operated a car after knowingly having a license suspended or revoked.
