New Law in Maryland..No Texting..No Emailing While Driving! We Need to Get the Word Out!
Even if your state has not passed this law...please get this information to everyone but especially to our young drivers!
If you drive in Maryland, its time to put that cellphone down and stop texting. Beginning today, Saturday October 1, 2011, police in Maryland can stop and ticket drivers who use their mobile phones to text, email or read messages while driving.
"The state wanted to tighten up the law and make it clear that when you're driving on Maryland roads they expect you to drive on Maryland roads not reading email or responding to texts," says Lon Anderson of AAA from the Mid-Atlantic, which pushed hard for the change.
Police issued more than 9,000 tickets to drivers for texting, but supporters of the measure felt making the primary offense would better accomplish the goal of getting drivers to stop texting, so state lawmakers okay-ed the switch earlier this year.
The first offense carries a fine of $70 and one point on the individual's driver's license. But if police believe the texting caused an accident, the fine jumps to $110 and three points toward a suspended license.
