Texting And Driving In Maryland

Drivers who are typing, sending or reading texts divert their eyes from the road. Distracted drivers are far more likely to cause accidents to other motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists.

To reduce the number of texting while driving accidents, Maryland law strictly prohibits an individual from writing or sending text messages while operating a motor vehicle. Recent legislation also prohibits all drivers from using a hand-held phone while driving on a street or highway. Drivers under the age of 18 are prohibited from any use of cell phones while driving.
