A new report by the National Safety Council has found that if all 50 U.S. states instituted comprehensive phased-in driving laws, 2,000 lives could be saved, but some opponents say it’s discriminatory.
We all know that texting while driving is dangerous, but in the near future it may be illegal in all states for all drivers in the nation. A new law was proposed in July that would require states to ban texting while driving for everyone, or risk losing 25 percent of their federal highway funding.
Most people think that once they pass their driving test, they’ll never have to take another one. For drivers in Florida this won’t always be the case. A law was passed last month the will require drivers who have received three crash-related moving violations within a three year period to take a behind-the-wheel class and retake their driving test.
Texting and driving has been a hot topic in the news lately because many states are banning the habit. What you probably haven’t heard about is the danger of texting and walking, but it too can be hazardous to your health.
Driving laws have changed for teens in Texas and these changes will affect both how you get your license and how you drive once you have it. This year’s legislative session brought about many improvements to teen driving laws, including driver education.
Driver education is a very important part of learning how to drive. Unfortunately laws have allowed future license holders to slide by with minimal requirements to how much they know before getting behind the wheel. Not anymore. A new law has been passed that will require you to have more experience before getting your license.
