No texting while driving

                                  No texting  while driving
CMV drivers are prohibited from testing while driving. So what qualifies as testing? Texting means manually entering alphanumeric text into, or reading text from, an electronic device. This includes, but is not limited to, short message service, e-mailing, instant messaging, a command or request to access a Web page, or pressing more than a single button to initiator terminate a voice communication using a mobile phone.
Use of mobile phones is restricted for CVM drivers
This ruling restricts a CVM driver from reaching for or holding a mobile phone to conduct a voice communication, as well as dialing by pressing more than a single button. CVM drivers who use a mobile phone while driving can only operate a hands-free phone located in close proximity. Inshore, the rule prohibits unsafely reaching for a device, holding a mobile phone, or pressing multiple buttons.
What happens if a driver is caught using a hand-held phone or texting while driving?
The rules impose sanctions for driver offenses, including civil penalties up to $2,750 and disqualification for multiple offenses. Motor carriers are also prohibited from requiring or allowing their drivers to text or use a hand-held mobile phone while driving and may be subject to civil penalties up to $11,000. Violations will impact ISMS results. Texting and calling on a hand-held phone carry the worst possible violation severity weights against a driver’s results!
