One of the fastest growing threats to traffic safety is distracted driving. Last year in Texas, 455 people were killed in accidents involving a distracted driver.
The most common form of distracted driving is using a cellphone while driving, often for texting or making a phone call.
There is currently no statewide ban on the use of cellphones while driving. However, more than 90 cities have restrictions on the use of cellphones while driving. Some of those restrictions include:
Those driving on a learner’s permit cannot use handheld cellphones during the first six months they drive.
Any driver under age 18 is not permitted to use a cellphone
School bus drivers cannot use cellphones when driving children
No drivers may text or use handheld devices when moving through a school zone.
These restrictions carry fines ranging from $200 to $500.
