Reminder: Don’t Text or Talk on a Cell Phone While Driving in Maryland

Residents are reminded that effective October 1, Maryland’s new cell phone law went into effect which means it is illegal to hold and talk on a cell phone while driving.  Texting while driving has been illegal for a year

The Communications Traffic Safety Act of 2010 prohibits “…a driver of a motor vehicle that is in motion from using the driver’s hands to use a handheld telephone except to initiate or terminate a wireless call or to turn on or off the handheld phone.”  Violating the law may result in a $40 fine for a first offense and $100 fine for a second offense.
