Abstract The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is responsible for reducing vehicle-related fatalities and injuries on our Nations highways. This digest reports the status of State laws that are concerned with distracted driving offenses. Distracted driving is any non-driving activity a person engages in while operating a motor vehicle. Such activities have the potential to distract the person from the primary task of safe driving and increase the risk of crashing. Of special concern is the use of electronic entertainment and communication devices, particularly cell phones. This digest contains comprehensive information on critical distracted driving laws for all 50 States, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico.
