Senate Bill 360 (click for more information) went into effect on July 1.
This new law prohibits the sending or reading of electronic mail or text messages while operating a motor vehicle. It does not apply while your vehicle is parked, but it does apply while you are sitting at an intersection. If ticketed, violators will be fined $150 and have one point assessed against their driver’s license.
I wanted to make sure you are aware of this.
