What is Louisiana’s texting while driving law?
Louisiana prohibits all drivers from texting while driving. This includes sending a text, reading or writing one. Louisiana’s distracted driving laws also prohibit drivers from using electronic devices for other purposes behind the wheel, including checking or writing emails or social media messages.
The only exception to this rule is drivers using GPS devices to look up directions. Emergency services personnel (police officers, firefighters, EMTs, etc.) are also exempt from this rule if they are using an electronic device as part of their work.
Penalties for violating Louisiana’s distracted driving laws include fines and suspension of the violator’s driver’s license. If a texting driver caused your car crash, hold them accountable for their actions. Talk to an experienced car accident lawyer who can fight for justice for you.
