Senior man talking on phone in car

The new San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law is now in effect!!!

But don’t worry. The 30 day grace period is still in effect. This means you will not get a ticket under the new San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law until after January 31st!!! You can still get pulled over and given a warning under the new San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law.

What you need to know about the new San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law.

It was already illegal to text and drive in San Antonio, but now it is illegal to hold your phone and text, make a call, or use an app while driving. But there are other things about the San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law that you need to know.

IF your phone is affixed to your vehicle you may use gps/navigation while driving. You can also make phone calls and text if you are using a hands free device such as Bluetooth or a built in car system.

It does not matter if you are stopped in traffic, at a stop sign, or traffic light. If police see you using your phone they can pull you over. You can only use your phone while driving if you are legally parked. So don’t think putting your car in park at a traffic light will get around this.

Watch out for the new San Antonio Hands Free Driving Law fines and fees.
