New Law » No Handheld Cellphone Use While Driving

Stuff you need to know …

A new law, prohibiting the use of handheld mobile phones while driving, goes into effect in Puerto Rico on 01 January 2013. The law specifically bans drivers from texting or talking on cellphones, without the use of hands-free equipment, while driving.

Note that violating this law is a primary offense — You can be pulled over and ticketed just for talking on the phone (without hands-free equipment) or for texting while driving. You do not need to be pulled over for some other moving violation first.

You can find out more about the "Ley de Vehículos de Tránsito de Puerto Rico" articles 1.42-A, 1.97-B and 10.25 on the Comisión para la Seguridad en el Tránsito web site (in Spanish) … comisionparalaseguridadeneltransito.com/celu…
