Distracted Driver Reporting

New Jersey Distracted Driver Reporting

In New Jersey, and across the nation, distracted driving has exploded as a top cause of crashes. It’s no secret smartphones receive most of the blame for this. The New Jersey Distracted Driver Reporting hotline aims to help.

New Jersey Aggressive Driver Reporting

Aggressive driving is not only dangerous, it’s illegal. In 1995, New Jersey introduced an aggressive driver reporting hotline. This hotline receives more than 2,000 calls a month. Since then, the program expanded to include distracted drivers in 2017.

Reporting Distracted Drivers in New Jersey

If you witness a distracted or aggressive driver, call #77. Of course, if you are driving, do not try to call and drive at the same time. Record the make, model, and year of the vehicle. Also, note the license plate of the vehicle. Drivers should pull off the road where safe and call to report.

What Happens to the Distracted Driver?

If a vehicle is reported as having a distracted driver, police will attempt to find the driver. If the police do not locate the driver, a letter is sent. The letter will inform the vehicle owner they were reported. The warning does not disclose information about the caller.
