As a Massachusetts DUI and motor vehicle law defense attorney, I was recently contacted by a few media sources seeking my opinion on the new texting laws which take affect on Thursday. Along with several other new driving regulations and penalties outlined in these laws, it will now be illegal for anyone to text-message while driving. It will also be illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to talk on a cell phone while driving. These laws are a step in the right direction in the name of public safety, however as an attorney who specializes in criminal, OUI and driving related-offenses, I know that these new laws will be extremely difficult to enforce.
Please read Boston’s Metro Newspaper in which I, along with other local driving-offense experts, explain that these laws will be difficult to enforce.
If you have questions on these laws or any other legal matter, feel free to contact my office or visit my website.
