Driving while using cell phone citations (updated March 1, 2021)

If you are cited for "driving while using cell phone" (39:4-97.3) it does require a court appearance. However, during COVID-19 you may plead guilty via plea by mail form without appearing virtually for court. Please call the court if you would like this option. However, if you feel you are not guilty, you will need to contact the court to schedule a virtual trial with the Officer for your ticket.

Certain violations may be amended via the "Online Dispute Resolution" system. Simply log on to www.njmcdirect.com and enter your ticket information, then click "Dispute this Ticket." You will need to create an account. This will allow you to amend your ticket and have it approved by the Prosecutor and Judge without making a court appearance.  See the Offense Eligible for Dispute Case (PDF) for the offenses that can be handled this way.
