Texting and Driving Could Get You Pulled Over

Texting and Driving

Effective July 1, 2017, Iowa's new distracted driving law makes texting and driving a primary offense. In other words, texting, using apps like Facebook, playing games, and checking email while you are driving is enough to get you pulled over, even if you aren't doing anything else wrong. 

Citizens who are pulled over for texting and driving could pay over $100 including ticket fee and court costs, and causing a serious accident while texting could earn the driver reckless driving charges and up to 10 years in prison. 

The law does not prohibit talking on a cell phone or checking your phone for GPS directions, but remember that safety is paramount while driving. To stay safe, avoid using your mobile device while behind the wheel.
