This bill requires the driver's license examination to include questions on distracted driving and makes it a violation for motorists to talk or text message with a hand-held wireless telephone or electronic communication device while temporarily stopped under certain circumstances. Specifically, this bill requires the Motor Vehicle Commission to expand the driver's license examination to include questions regarding distracted driving. In addition, under the provisions of this bill, it is a violation for a motorist to talk or text message on a hand-held wireless telephone or electronic communication device while temporarily stopped because of traffic, a traffic light, a stop sign, or otherwise. However, the bill provides that it is not a violation for a motorist to talk or text on a hand-held wireless telephone or electronic communication device when the vehicle has been pulled over to the side of or off of the road and has stopped in a location where the vehicle can safely remain stationary.
