DISTRACTED DRIVING LAWS


Texting and Web Access

It is illegal for drivers of all ages to compose, read, or send electronic messages or access the Internet on a wireless device when the vehicle is in motion or part of traffic. This includes being stopped in traffic or at a light.
The law does not apply to devices that are permanently affixed to the vehicle or global positioning or navigation systems.

Cell Phone Use and Texting

  • It is illegal for drivers under age 18 to use a cell phone, whether hand-held or hands-free — except to call 911 in an emergency.         
  • Cell phone use is totally banned for school bus drivers.                                                      

Reckless or Careless Driving

  • Distracted drivers can be ticketed for reckless or careless driving when their actions demonstrate a disregard for the safety or rights of others.
