|Subject:||Distracted Driving (Prior HB 892)|
|I intend to reintroduce legislation regarding distracted drivers.
Using electronic devices, grooming products, eating and drinking, and reading printed material while operating a vehicle, can affect drivers and cause dangerous situations. This legislation will create an additional summary offense of distracted driving if a driver is also found to be driving carelessly. The fine for distracted driving will be $50.
This bill would also establish the Driver Distraction Awareness Fund. All fines will be deposited into that fund, and it shall be used solely for the fund’s educational program.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this bill.
Introduced as HB1856
