jenrgw Maryland Closes Texting and Driving Loophole

Prior to October 1, 2011, Maryland’s distracted driving law only prevented drivers from sending a text while driving. It did not prevent them from reading texts while driving. That loophole has now been closed and it is against the law in Maryland to read, write or send a text or an email while driving.

Texting and driving in Maryland is a primary offense.  That means that police officers have the authority to stop you and ticket you if they see you texting – even if you are not breaking any other law.

What do you think of the new Maryland distracted driving law? Is it likely to help prevent future distracted driving accidents?
