When did new cell phone law happen?
New Cellular Phone Laws Went Into Effect July 1, 2008
Am I allowed to use my wireless telephone "hands-free?"
No. Drivers under the age of 18 may not use a wireless telephone, pager, laptop or any other electronic communication or mobile services device to speak or text while driving in any manner, even "hands-free." EXCEPTION: Permitted in emergency situations to call police, fire or medical authorities.
Why is the law stricter for provisional drivers?
Statistics show that teen drivers are more likely than older drivers to be involved in crashes because they lack driving experience and tend to take greater risks. Teen drivers are vulnerable to driving distractions such as talking with passengers, eating or drinking, and talking or texting on wireless devices, which all increase the chance of getting involved in serious vehicle crashes.
Can my parents give me permission to allow me to use my wireless telephone while driving?
No. The only exception is an emergency situation that requires you to call a law enforcement agency, a health care provider, the fire department or other emergency agency entity.
Does the law apply to me if I'm an emancipated minor?
Yes. The restriction applies to all licensed drivers who are under the age of 18.
If I have my parent(s) or someone age 25 years or older in the car with me, may I use my wireless telephone while driving?
No. You may only use your wireless telephone in an emergency situation.
Will the restriction appear on my provisional license?
May I use the hands-free feature while driving if my car has the feature built in?
No. The law prohibits anyone under the age of 18 from using any type of wireless device while driving, except in an emergency situation.
Can a law enforcement officer stop me for using my "hands-free" device while driving?
For drivers under the age of 18, this is considered a SECONDARY violation meaning that a law enforcement officer may cite you for using a "hands-free" wireless device if you were pulled over for another violation. However, the prohibition against using a handheld wireless device while driving is a PRIMARY violation for which a law enforcement officer can pull you over.
Smoking in car law
On January 1, 2008, a law went into effect, which bans smoking in cars when there are children younger than 18 present. Those caught violating the law will face up to a $100 fine.
Why was smoking in car law made?
The law was created to protect children who are particularly vulnerable to the dangerous effects of secondhand smoke. Air quality in a car where someone is smoking can reach nearly 10 times over the hazardous levels set by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. This level of air pollution in the vehicle caused by smoke from a cigarette is so severe that breathing it is dangerous for anyone.
