Legislators Tackle Distracted Driving

Two bills addressing the issue of cell phone use while driving have been introduced in the Legislature. 

Senate Bill 140, sponsored by Henderson Senator Shirley Breeden, would levy a 250-dollar fine for those who chat or text while driving.  The fines would increase for repeat offenders, and drivers convicted for a third time would have their drivers licenses suspended for six months. 

A second bill, introduced by Senator Mark Manendo of Las Vegas,  would ban underage drivers from using a cell phone or texting.  Several other measures targeting phone and text activity while driving are being prepared for this year’s Legislature.
