Starting July 1, 2010 I will now be a crime to "text" while driving. This new law will give a new reason for the police to stop vehicles. Once a car is stopped, a police officer can investigate someone if they have a reasonable suspicion that the person is DUI. Also, a police officer can make an arrest for a crime he sees in his "plain view." Such things can include marijuana and/or other drugs. So be careful not to text while driving. Not only is it a safety issue; it may keep you out of jail for some other criminal offense.
