    thanks for the link
     
    I live on a pretty busy road (one of the main roads to the 59th street bridge in NYC) the other day I looked out my window to see one of those driving instructor cars with a student driver, the instructor was texting and not even watching the student driver! People need to learn to shut those things off

    New anti-mobile-device law went into effect today in MA.

    - No mobile device use while driving allowed by any driver under age 18

    - No sending or reading text messages or e-mail while driving by anyone

    - Drivers 18 and older must keep at least one hand firmly on the wheel while using a mobile device

    - Citations for under-18 mobile device use also result in an automatic 60-day license suspension

    - Stationary navigation devices (attached to the interior of the vehicle or permanently or factory installed) are exempt

    - Enforcement is primary (no other violation is required for a traffic stop)
