Texting While Driving: New Texas Law Needs Autocorrect

image1.jpgAs you may have heard, Texas has passed House Bill 62 which will be codified as Section 545.4251 of the Texas Transportation Code. This new law, effective September 1, 2017, will prohibit the use of a portable wireless communication device to read, write, or send an electronic message while operating a motor vehicle, unless the vehicle is stopped. Said another way, you can no longer text and drive unless you are safely stopped at a red light or stop sign. Electronic message means a text message, email, or even social media message that is being sent for the purpose of communicating with another person. Certain exceptions will apply for emergency situations.
