Be sure to check out our list of the Ways the police know you are texting and driving.
The use of cell phones while driving continues to climb, but so does the number of distracted driving accidents and now the number of texting traffic tickets.
Many states have laws about texting and driving or using a handheld device while driving. San Antonio recently passed a new law that will prohibit the use of a handheld cell phone or device while driving, starting on January 1st, 2015. Read more about this at our Traffic Ticket SA website or read our post about it here.
One of the easiest Ways the police know you are texting is to have your phone in your lap. There is no reason for some that is driving a car to be looking down, unless you are using a cell phone.
Another one of the Ways the police know you are texting is when it is night time and your phone lights up the interior of your car. Having a bright screen on your phone and using in dark conditions is just asking for a ticket.
An individual that is driving too slow or too fast, makes sudden corrections, or is weaving in their lane are all signs that the driver is distracted. These are also Ways the police know you are texting and driving.
