Unfortunately, we now live in an age where texting and driving is becoming a serious driving hazard for others on the road. Some studies have shown that a driver texting while driving is just as, if not more, dangerous on the road than a driver driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Even a split second of looking down can cause serious accidents and, in many cases, fatalities.

Illegal Act In Pennsylvania: Texting While Driving

The issue of distracted driving in Pennsylvania has become such an issue that state legislatures recently passed a law prohibiting texting and driving. The use of an electronic device (including cellphones, smartphones, etc.) for the purpose of sending, reading or writing a text message while operating a motor vehicle is illegal.

What this means is if a driver chooses to read a text, write a text or send a text on his or her cellphone, he or she could be cited by law enforcement.
