All 50 states, including New Jersey, have received a recommendation from the National Transportation Safety Board to lower the legal blood alcohol limit for drunk driving from .08 to .05.

New Jersey insurance laws limit lawsuits

Many New Jersey drivers who sign insurance policies agree to other stipulations in the process. Insurance policies often restrict the lawsuits that policyholders can initiate, for instance, and these lawsuit limits may appeal to drivers because they often come with lower premiums.Lawsuit limitations generally forbid drivers from suing for accident damages unless their collisions fall into a certain category. These include car accidents that cause death, major scarring, significant disfigurement, miscarriage, displaced bone fractures and dismemberment. They also apply to accidents that lead to permanent injuries requiring further treatment to heal and have been verified by medical diagnostics. Lawsuit limitation clauses are completely legal; they were codified by the New Jersey State Legislature in an attempt to reduce the amount of lawsuits over injuries that weren't serious or permanent.
