Anti-texting law goes into effect

March 6, 2012

PHIA has been serving highway users for over 50 years.  Therefore, we feel it’s important to pass along this important information affecting all drivers.

Pennsylvania’s NEW anti-texting law goes into effect Thursday, March 8.  Of nearly 14,000 crashes involving distracted driving in Pennsylvania in 2010, one in eight involved a driver using a hand-held phone.

Violators of the new law could face a $50 fine.  For a fact sheet that summarizes the new law, click here.
