You may have noticed that San Antonio, Austin, and other cities in Texas have added new Hands Free Driving Laws to their books to start the new year. While their fines range from $200 to $500 respectively those cities are still under a 30 day grace period.
But this is old news for anyone that already knows about the Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law.
The Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law was adopted back in October of 2013. While there was a 30 day grace period when the law went into effect, this time period is long over. Using your cell phone to make a call, send a text, or use an app while driving will cost you under the Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law. Under the Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law you could face a traffic ticket fine of up to $500.
The Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law does allow for exception though. You are allowed to use your phone if you are using it through either a built in system with your car or with a bluetooth or other wireless system. You can also use your phone under the Corpus Christi Hands Free Driving Law if you are making an emergency call. An emergency call is a call to 911, a hospital, or health clinic.
