Teenagers And Texting While Driving
Holding Teen Drivers Accountable To Local Cell Phone Laws
Under Texas law, learners permit holders are prohibited from using handheld cell phones during their first six months of driving. In addition, no driver under the age of 17 is allowed to use any wireless communication device behind the wheel. Many other communities, including San Antonio, have implemented local bans on texting while driving and other cell phone usage restrictions.
These laws were put in place to keep drivers from being distracted while driving and to keep their attention on the road in front of them. Still, countless drivers, including teenagers, disregard the law, putting themselves and those around them in considerable danger. If you have been injured in an accident that happened because a teenage driver was texting or making a phone call, it is important that you seek the advice of a personal injury lawyer.
