What is Distracted Driving?
According to in.gov, “distracted driving is any non-driving activity a motorist engages in that has the potential to distract him or her from the primary task of driving.” Common examples of this type of driving behavior include the use of cell phones while driving, including texting and talking on the phone.
In Indiana, texting and driving is not allowed for anyone, regardless of age. If pulled over while texting and driving, you could be facing a $500 fine.
If you are under 18 years old, the only time you can make a phone call while driving is to call 911 in an emergency situation. This cell phone ban includes using hands-free devices as well.
Otherwise, if you are over 18, you may speak on your phone and drive. However, be aware that each year new bills are proposed to amend distracted driver laws, and there is a chance Indiana will follow other states examples and impose an all-encompassing statewide ban on using a cell phone while driving.
