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.
