Legal Speak

Did You Know…?

Did you know that in Arkansas, it is illegal to text while driving?  Arkansas Code Ann. 27-51-1504 says that “a driver of a motor vehicle shall not use a handheld wireless telephone for wireless interactive communication while operating a motor vehicle”.  The law, otherwise known as Paul’s Law came about from a tragedy where a person who was texting caused an accident that killed another person.  Be safe and don’t text & drive!
