No Texting While Driving

No texting while driving

CMV drivers are prohibited from texting while driving. So what qualifies as texting? Texting means manually entering alphanumeric text into, or reading text from, an electronic device. This includes, but is not limited to, short message service, e-mailing, instant messaging, a command or request to access a Web page, or pressing more than a single button to initiate or terminate a voice communication using a mobile phone.
 
Use of mobile phones is restricted for CMV drivers

This ruling restricts a CMV driver from reaching for, or holding, a mobile phone to conduct a voice communication, as well as dialing by pressing more than a single button. CMV drivers who use a mobile phone while driving can only operate a hands-free phone located in close proximity. In short, the rule prohibits unsafely reaching for a device, holding a mobile phone, or pressing multiple buttons.

How can drivers use a mobile phone and still obey the rules?

. Locate the mobile phone so it is operable by the driver while restrained by properly adjusted safety belts.
. Utilize an earpiece or the speaker phone function.
. Use voice-activated or one-button touch features to initiate, answer, or terminate a call.


What happens if a driver is caught using a hand-held phone or texting while driving?

The rules impose sanctions for driver offenses, including civil penalties up to $2,750 and disqualification for multiple offenses. Motor carriers are also prohibited from requiring or allowing their drivers to text or use a hand-held mobile phone while driving and may be subject to civil penalties up to $11,000. Violations will impact SMS results. Texting and calling on a hand-held phone carry the worst possible violation severity weights against a driver’s results!

BOTTOM LINE: Using a hand held device while driving is a serious traffic violation that could result in a disqualification.

No call, no text, no ticket!
 
 It's very easy to comply with the new rules: No REACHING, No HOLDING, No DIALING, No TEXTING, No READING.
