NEW TEXAS DRIVING LAWS

• HB 55: Prohibits the use of a cell phone in a school zone unless the vehicle is stopped or a hands-free device is used.

• HB 339: Prohibits teens under 18 from texting or talking on a cell phone while driving.

• HB 537: Requires everyone in a vehicle to wear a seatbelt, regardless of age or where he or she is seated.

• SB 61: Requires that any child younger than 8 be secured in an approved child safety seat system when riding in a passenger vehicle, unless the child is taller than four feet, nine inches. A violation will cost up to $25 for the first offense and not more than $250 for a second offense.


I think these are good laws however I want a law that states that people driving in passing lanes get ticketed. That is my pet peeve. People driving (and camping out) in the passing lane. This causes me INSTANT road rage. I dont act on it but it makes me angry!

I agree!That is a reason for instant road rage. Espicially when you are sandwhiched in by slow pokes and you are in a hurry.
