New Jersey says No to GPS, Car Navigation Systems

By Automotive Staff | June 23, 2009
First, there was the ban on cellphone. Okay, that's almost understandable. But car gps/navigation systems? Well, that's what the state of New Jersey is doing. It is considering a law that would make it illegal for the driver to touch the screen of the device while the vehicle is in motion. The state already forbids the use of cellphones while driving. The anti-GPS law's similar to that found in Spain, which charges violators a fee of $140 (100 euros). Violators in the state would be charged a $100. via theNewspaper

Wow that is pretty crazy. That should be interesting to see how that is enforced. I can only imagine the conversations."You touched the screen," "no I didn't." "yes you did."
