RECKLESS DRIVING IN NEW JERSEY
We all know, reckless driving thrills but kills. No doubt, if you are driving recklessly, you are not only putting your own life in danger, but others life too. Almost everybody drives recklessly today either due to anxiety or hurry or for experiencing thrill or adventure. It’s easy to call other people a jerk, if he or she is driving recklessly, but to put serious driving into practice, is a tedious task for every one of us. Your driving is considered as reckless not only when you are at high speed, but also when you are engaged in other activities while driving such as talking on a cell phone, putting on makeup, or any of the thousand other things that divert your full attention on the road.
Luckily, because of strict traffic rules and regulations in New Jersey most of the people get their wake-up call before they injure themselves, someone else, or wreck someone’s property. But the unfortunate part of that wake-up call is that it usually comes in the form of getting issued a careless or reckless driving traffic ticket.
