States Curbing Distraction In Myriad Ways, According To The GHSA

The Governors Highway Safety Association has released a new study that examines the state of distracted driving laws in place throughout the country, and the results show that officials everywhere are taking steps to curtail the threat, even if they’re doing so in different ways.  The organization points out that South Carolina, Arizona, and Montana are the only holdouts to having a distracted driving law of some type on the books.  However, various cities within those states have enacted their own measures, and it’s often possible to pull a driver over anyway if their distracting action leads to a reckless maneuver that would itself be deemed illegal.  The report also acknowledges the dramatic jump in texting and driving bans and the various awareness efforts that have been enacted to cut down on distraction.
