Iowa legislators vote to make distracted driving a primary offense
Iowa legislators approved a bill that will make distracted driving a primary offense.
With a nearly unanimous vote of 11-1, the Senate Study Bill 3191 was approved on February 20. If the bill passes to law, authorities will be able to give drivers a ticket if they catch them using their phone while driving. A federal website estimated that drivers are not focused on the road for an average time of 5 seconds every time they send a text message.
