Gov. Chris Christie has signed legislation that orders the installation of signs throughout New Jersey to remind drivers not to text and drive.

Flickr user: [SiK-photo][/caption]The measure, known as "Nikki's Law," is named after Nikki Kellenyi, an 18-year-old Washington Township resident who was killed in an April 2012 vehicle crash.

Gloucester County authorities have said Kellenyi was a backseat passenger in a car that crashed into a pickup truck. Two other people in the car survived the accident.

Investigators have said it was "inconclusive" whether or not illegal cell phone use played a role in the accident. But the crash spurred Kellenyi family to start a nonprofit group to raise awareness about the dangers of texting and driving.
