What Is Considered "Distracted Driving"?
In the Lone Star State, distracted driving encompasses any activity diverting a driver's attention from the crucial task of driving. Whether it's texting, talking on the phone, eating, or using in-car entertainment systems, these distractions pose serious risks, leading to accidents, injuries, and tragic consequences.
Texas Distracted Driving Laws
In Texas, it is illegal for drivers to read, write, or send electronic messages while driving. The law, enacted in 2017, aims to reduce accidents caused by distractions like texting. Violation of this law can result in fines, and if a distracted driver causes an accident, they may be held liable for damages.
Texting Ban: All drivers are prohibited from sending or reading text messages while driving.
Handheld Device Ban for Young Drivers: Drivers under 18 cannot use handheld devices while driving.
School Zone Ban: Using handheld devices is prohibited in active school zones, unless the vehicle is stopped or a hands-free device is used.
