Talking on a Cell Phone
It’s illegal for you to use a handheld phone for phone conversations while driving. Hands-free calls can be made, but talking on your phone while holding it is a primary offense.
Texting While Driving
Reading, writing, or sending texts while driving is also illegal. If you’re driving, you must pull over and come to a complete stop before doing any of these things. The only legal exceptions are use of GPS and texting 911 for help.
Buckle Up, Phone Down
Using your phone for calls and texts is one of the most dangerous distractions while driving. It takes your eyes off the road, your hands off the wheel, and your attention away from your surroundings. This is why penalties are becoming harsher for those who risk a peek at their phone. Get into the habit starting today: buckle up, phone down, every time you get behind the wheel.
