New laws go into effect for Maryland drivers

Starting October 1st, Maryland law enforcement can pull over and ticket drivers who have a cell phone in hand or to their ear while driving a vehicle.   Also beginning today, all passengers 16 years and older sitting in the rear seats of a vehicle are now required to wear a seat belt.  The new seat belt law is a secondary offense which means a police officer must pull over a driver for another offense.  These two new laws will help eliminate needless tragedies on Maryland roads moving the State Toward Zero Deaths.
