jenrgw New Distracted Driving Regulation Takes Effect Tomorrow

Tomorrow is the day the new ban on handheld cell phones goes into effect for commercial truckers around the country. Under the new law, interstate commercial truck drivers will no longer be allowed to use a handheld cell phone, or push to talk, while driving. They may continue to use a cell phone with a hands free device or by using the speakerphone function unless prohibited by another law or regulation.

The prohibition includes dialing a phone number on a mobile phone. However, touching a single button to make or answer a phone call is permitted.

Both drivers and carriers may be responsible for violations of this regulation, and for resulting distracted driving accidents that occur because of illegal cell phone use.
