Bill introduced to crack down on distracted driving

New legislation has been introduced to change the distracted driving law in Michigan.

 

Northern Michigan republican Representative Tristan Cole wants to add reading an email or sending a message on a cell phone to the list of banned activities for drivers.

 

Currently the law bans texting while driving. Cole’s plan also limits new drivers under the age of 18 from talking or listening to a cellphone call while driving except in the case of an emergency.

 

Another bill, introduced would increase fines for drivers who text while driving from 100-dollars to 250-dollars for first time violators.

 

The penalty would increase from 200-dollars to 500-dollars for a second violation.
