Q. What has law enforcement done in New Jersey to make roads safer?
A. Irresponsible or aggressive drivers make the road an unsafe place. This type of driving often leads to accidents. The New Jersey State Driver Responsibility Program states that those driving illegally or irresponsibly may be liable for the injuries and/or damages cause by their actions. Similar programs have been adapted in Michigan, New York and Texas. These programs have become lucrative revenue streams for each state. As a New Jersey driver, it is important to understand what the Driver Responsibility Program means and how it can affect you.
