Assemblymember Frazier Introduces Bill To Ban Hands-Free Texting While Driving

Sacramento, CA - Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) has introduced a bill (Assembly Bill 313) that will outlaw voice-activated, hands-free texting.  State law allows drivers to send and receive text messages or emails while driving so long as they communicate through a hands-free or voice-operated system.

“Study after study has shown that all distractions endanger driver, passenger, and bystander safety,” said Frazier.  “Distracted drivers cause more than 5,400 deaths (15 per day) and about half a million injuries (1200 per day) every year.  Among those killed or injured in these crashes, nearly 1,000 deaths and 24,000 injuries included cell phone use as the major distraction.”

Hands-free texting while driving would be banned under bill

SACRAMENTO, CA - A Bay Area Assemblyman wants to prohibit texting with hands-free mobile devices while driving.
