Md. Laws Will Be More Stringent For Drivers Using Cell Phones

WASHINGTON - Drivers may be tempted when they hear their phone ding or buzz, but they'll have to resist even picking up the phone while driving in Maryland, or risk being pulled over.

Using a handheld cell phone while driving is already illegal in the state, but starting October 1, police officers can pull drivers over for it.

A new state law will soon go into effect making using a phone while driving a primary offense, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. That means drivers can get a ticket if they are using the phone, even if they are not breaking any other traffic rules.

Notice how all the solutions to problems involve fines that bring revenue to the state?
