Distracted Driving Laws

Peggy continues the distracted-driving discussion, asking listeners about laws in states. Do you know some states still do not ban texting at all? Do you know laws vary from city to city? She says many drivers are not aware of the current law. Peggy sees drivers holding handheld phones in Illinois, even though the law has changed and all handheld devices are banned in Illinois. The GHSA has a detailed chart outlining the various distracted-driving laws, state-by-state.
