Texting Ban Update: Governor Signs Bill into Law

Driver texting while driving

On Tuesday, Nov. 8, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett signed a bill to prohibit drivers from sending or receiving text messages while driving.

The new legislation will become law in March 2012. As a primary offense, police officers will be able to pull over any driver suspected of texting while behind the wheel. The fine for violating the law will be $50 for each offense.

Pennsylvania will join 34 other states that already have texting laws in place. Nine states prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones entirely.

For more information on distracted driving, including cell phone laws and texting while driving statistics are available on the Edgar Snyder & Associates website.
