For those concerned about safety on Pennsylvania roads and those eager to prevent distracted driving accidents, March 8, 2012 is a much anticipated day in the Commonwealth. Today is the day that the new Pennsylvania distracted driving law takes effect. Here is what you need to know.
Beginning today it is illegal to:
- Text and drive. This includes reading, writing and sending text messages.
- Browse the internet and drive.
Drivers who are ticketed for violating the law may be fined beginning today. However, the law is about more than a fine. The law is meant to prevent calls to a distracted driving injury attorney in PA. It is meant to prevent accident injuries and fatalities and our accident injury lawyers hope that it is successful.
