Program Notes:

Guy Smith provided a list of over 50 new laws to become effective in Texas this year. One such law that will impact Texas drivers is the ban on texting while operating a motor vehicle. House Bill 62, which took effect on September 1st, 2017, prohibits drivers on public roads from using a wireless communication device (i.e., a cell phone) to read, write, or send an electronic message while operating a motor vehicle. It only applies if you are actually driving, so texting while stopped is still okay. Other significant new laws were also discussed.
