Texting & Driving
November 9, 2011
Are you familiar with the Massachusetts law that prohibits texting while driving? Actually it prohibits most usage with a cell phone while driving.
If you are driving a car and get into an accident because of cell phone use...You will face criminal charges.You will also lose your license.
If you're a junior operator (under 18 years old) you will lose it for 180 days or 6 months. A second offense will have you losing your license for 365 days or 1 year. If you're over 18 you will lose your license for 60 days or 2 months.
A second offense will grant you a license suspension of 365 days or 1 year. Harsh consequences. But then again, car accidents are no fun.
