Texting While Driving Is Illegal in Lancaster and Palmdale

Under the terms of California Vehicle Code §23123, all drivers are prohibited from using cell phones and other handheld electronic communications devices behind the wheel. Many states across the country ban cell phones only for teenage drivers, but California's ban applies to drivers of any age.

This includes a prohibition against talking, as well as sending or receiving text messages. The ban is a primary enforcement law, which means that a police officer can pull a driver over on the grounds that he or she was talking or texting behind the wheel and without any other reason.

How Common Are Distracted Driving Accidents?

Using a cell phone while driving is obviously dangerous. In fact, AT&T recently conducted a survey that found that 98 percent of commuters believe that texting or sending email behind the wheel is dangerous.

In spite of the widespread recognition of its danger, many drivers continue to engage in this behavior.

The same survey found that 49 percent of commuters admit to texting while driving, in addition to 43 percent of teenagers. It is also becoming increasingly common, as evidenced by the fact that 60 percent of commuters reported that they never would have texted behind the wheel as recently as 3 years ago.
