jenrgw Pennsylvania Senate Approves Distracted Driving Legislation

Last week, the Pennsylvania Senate voted 41 -8 in favor of a distracted driving bill that would:

  • Prohibit talking on a cell phone while driving unless the driver is using a hands free device such as a Bluetooth.
  • Prohibit all talking on a cell phone for drivers under age 18.
  • Prohibit texting, e-mailing, messaging, surfing the web or any other activity that requires a driver’s hands to be on his or her cell phone rather than the wheel.
  • Limit teenage drivers under age 18 to one passenger for the first 6 months after getting a driver’s license.  Exceptions are made for family members. 
  • Make not wearing a seatbelt a primary offense for drivers under age 18.

The Pennsylvania distracted driving law now heads to the House of Representatives for consideration.
