Hands Free Texting Legal While Driving for 2013

Posted By The Law Offices of Eugene G. Bruno, P.C. Posted in: Car Accident.

It’s still unlawful to pull out your smart phone and start texting, but hands free texting (such as using Apple’s Siri) is now legal in California for 2013. You can still be ticketed if you are operating your smart phone while it is in your hand.

The new law applies to hands free, voice activated systems only. The bill’s sponsor in the legislature says the new law is just keeping up with technology. The National Safety Council says even hands free technologies can mean unnecessary distractions for drivers and is expected to seek to repeal the law.
