Bloom Legal Video Blog: DWT (Driving While Texting)
Posted on Jan 5, 2012 in Courts, Local Issues, NOPD, Traffic
Attorney Seth Bloom of Bloom Legal LLC in New Orleans, LA explains the new trend of DWT (Driving While Texting) citations.
Many jurisdictions across the country and in New Orleans and Metairie in particular are considering new regulations to allow police to issue citations for Driving While Texting. These new regulations would allow law enforcement to move beyond the mere issuing of a traffic ticket but would become more like DWI/DUI violations making drivers subject to prosecution in the future.
