This is a serious matter! You and your friends' lives can be saved by following this new driving law.
Kelsey’s Law, named after the girl that was killed in 2010 when she was texting while driving, affects teenage drivers:
Teen drivers holding
- Level 1 licenses
- Level 2 graduated licenses
- Level 3 drivers exempt.
$100 fine. If you are caught texting or talking on the cell phone while the car is in motion, you will be pulled over and fined $100.
The message is plain and simple, “Do not text or talk on your cell phone while driving.”
Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder signed the new teen law, Kelsey's Law, and it is on the record.
Many lives have been lost to cell phone usage while driving: deadly accidents and injuries of teens that can never be recovered. Lives taken too soon.
Good kids, athletes, college bound teens lives have been lost to cell phones.
Instructions to Teens Driving With Cell Phones
The next time you are driving and need to use your cell phone or someone calls you or texts you, pull to the side of the road, so you can properly answer the call or wait until you reach your destination to answer or read the text.
Lastly, parents, please be a good example for your child to follow.
Thanks for passing this along!
