Massachusetts Adopts No-Texting-While-Driving Law

As a public safety and law enforcement solutions company, Hunter Systems Group, aims to not only develop innovative products that allow police departments and patrol forces everywhere to exceed at targeting and processing criminals, but we also strive to keep the public informed of pertinent safety and law-related information:

Remember today, September 30, 2010 is the first day that The Massachusetts No-Texting-While-Driving Law goes into effect. Now we know that all of our readers, friends, and subscribers are smart enough already, and didn’t need a LAW to tell us not to do this not-so-smart action. But in case some of you didn’t know what exactly is forbidden under this new law, here it is:

It is now against Massachusetts law to:
-type a text message while driving.
-read a text message while driving.
-send a text message while driving.
-access the Internet in your car from any mobile device

And, finally, sixteen and seventeen year olds cannot talk on cell phones at all when they drive – only in the event of an emergency.

But, we’re sure your common sense already prevented you from doing any of the above-mentioned offenses. Stay Safe!
