Oklahoma City Driving While Texting Accident Attorneys
Texting and Driving Laws in Oklahoma
In 2015 Oklahoma banned the use of cellular devices to text, take photos/videos, & post to social media. However, it is still legal for adult drives to make phone calls with or without hands free equipment. If you are pulled over & cited for texting while driving the penalty for a first offense is $100 fine & can become increasingly severe if cited for multiple offenses.
Texting while driving is one of the most dangerous forms of distracted driving. Texting not only takes one's attention and eyes off the road but also takes one or even both of a driver's hands from the steering wheel. This greatly hinders a driver's ability to react to a change in traffic, emergency situation or traffic signal or even to remain in his or her own lane on the road. In some ways texting while driving may be considered as dangerous as, if not more dangerous than, drunk driving.
