8 Mar 2012

The new law specifically does the following:

Prohibits as a primary offense all drivers from using an Interactive Wireless Communication Device (IWCD) to send, read or write a text-based message.

Defines an IWCD as a wireless phone, personal digital assistant, smart phone, portable or mobile computer or similar devices that can be used for texting, instant messaging, emailing or browsing the Internet.

Defines a text-based message as a text message, instant message, email or other written communication composed or received on an IWCD.

Institutes a $50 fine for convictions under this section.

Makes clear that this law supersedes and preempts any local ordinances restricting the use of interactive wireless devices by drivers.
