Pennsylvania Texting While Driving Law Strengthened

PA texting laws

Pennsylvania lawmakers have amended the state's ban on texting while driving, voting to make it a primary offense for all drivers.

This means that police can pull drivers over whom they suspect are texting behind the wheel. Texting was previously a secondary offense, meaning that drivers could only be cited if they were originally stopped for a different violation.

A separate amendment, which would have banned the use of hand-held cell phones while driving, was defeated.
