2009 New Driving Laws – Happy New Year!

Here are a few interesting driving laws that go into effect in 2009

No Text Messaging – In California, the legislature passed a “no-text law”.  This means that it will be against the law to write, send, or read any text-based communication while driving.  This includes emails.

No Tolerance DUI Law – California’s DUI laws have become more strict.  In 2009, any person who is on probation for a DUI conviction cannot drive with a BAC of .01 percent.  No tolerance.

Clean Air Stickers – Many clean air or low emission cars are allowed to travel in the carpool lane even if there are no passengers in the car.  In 2009, it will be a crime to forge Clean Air Stickers.
