REMINDER OF NEW SCHOOL ZONE LAWS

School Zones and Cell Phone Use

If you're driving through a school zone during posted hours, it is against the law to use your cell phone or other mobile device for any reason, including:

  • Making a phone call.
  • Texting.
  • Social networking.

The only exceptions to this rule are if:

  • You need to report an emergency (including traffic hazards or accidents).
  • Your personal safety is at risk.
  • You need to report or avert a criminal act against someone (including yourself).
  • You are legally parked.
  • You operate an emergency vehicle and must use your cell phone as part of your job.

If you are caught illegally using your cell phone in a school zone, you will be charged with a moving violation. The fine for a first offense is $175 and any second or subsequent offenses carry a fine of up to $500.
