Don't get caught using your phone while driving.
Starting tomorrow police are no longer giving out warnings, instead they will be giving out moving violations.
You can receive a moving violation for:
- texting or talking on the phone while driving, at a stop sign, at a red light, or while you're sitting in traffic
- accessing the maps app
The only exceptions to these are if you're reporting an emergency, if you pull over to the side of the road or if you use hands-free technology like bluetooth, but you must be at least 18 years or older in order to use hands-free tech.
If you receive 3 moving violations in a year, your license will be suspended.
Also starting tomorrow, the gas tax will go from $.19 to $.38 and the tax on cigarettes will increase by $1.
