Texting Ban Started October 27, 2010

Today texting while driving for CMV operators becomes part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s list of serious violations that count against a driver’s CDL. In addition, texting while driving carries a 10-point severity weight rating and is a driver responsible offense in CSA 2010.

Fines range from $2,750 for drivers to $11,000 for carriers.

Additional regulatory actions are being sought to restrict the use of cell phones while driving commercial motor vehicles.
