PA More Lenient With Cell Use Than Neighboring States

According to an area news report, the state of Pennsylvania is not as strict as its neighbors in regulating phone use while driving.  While PA only bans texting while driving, the neighboring states of New Jersey and New York ban all handheld cell phone use.  Considering that teenage drivers account for about 10% of all car accidents in the country, it appears that young drivers may be among the most at-risk groups.  For more information on the original article posted by the Governor's Highway Safety Administration, please click here.

 

If you are involved in a car accident, most states, including Pennsylvania, have at least one section on the incident report dedicated to distracted driving violations.  Fines and charges may increase if you are cited with one of these violations.

In addition to fines and charges for distracted driving, you also are putting yourself and others in danger. We encourage all of our readers to remember to stay focused while driving, especially as dangerous weather approaches us this fall and winter.
