HB347 by Pitts (Relating to prohibiting using a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle on school property.), As Engrossed
The bill would amend Section 545.425 of the Transportation Code to extend the prohibition of using a wireless communication device while operating a motor vehicle to the property of a public or private elementary or middle school unless the vehicle is stopped or a hands-free device is used.
The Department of Public Safety estimates there would be a minimal cost associated with implementing the provisions of the bill.
