Effective on Tuesday, an increase in fine costs of people using cell phones while driving begins.
The fines are geared towards drivers both talking and texting while operating a motor vehicle. If pulled over, offenders will receive at $200-$400 fine. Second time offenders could see up to $600, and drivers caught a third time could lose their license for 90 days and pay out up to $800.
New Jersey authorities say they are going to put more emphasis on pulling over drivers on their cellular devices.
