It’s the LAW!

As of July 1st, 2008, it’s against the LAW to use your wireless phone while driving.

Did you know…..

  • that while you are driving, you cannot use your handheld cell phone?
  • that the fine for the first offense is $20 and $50 or more for additional convictions?
  • that the conviction will appear on your driving record?
  • that the DMV will NOT add a violation point to your driving record?
  • that it IS legal to use a Bluetooth, earpiece or speakerphone function of your cell phone while driving? 
  • the law allows you to use your cell phone to make emergency calls, such as to your doctor, fire department and law enforcement?
  • that the law does not apply to your passengers? So, your passengers can make the call for you!
  • drivers under the age of 18 CANNOT use a cell phone or any hands-free device (including pagers, laptops and other mobile service devices) to speak or text while operating a vehicle?
