New Distracted Driving Law Effective July 23

The new Distracted Driving Law, effective July 23,  prohibits drivers from holding an electronic device, including phones, tablets, and other devices, while driving - even in traffic or at stoplights.  Also addressed in the new law are other types of distractions such as grooming, smoking, eating and reading.   

This informative flyer, from our partners at Target Zero, provides some specifics about the new law you need to know.     

To read the entire text of the law, see SB 5289.
