Distracted Driving – Phone Use While Driving In Kentucky

Nearly a quarter of all accidents in 2011 were caused by a driver attempting to use a cell phone and drive at the same time. To curb the problems that cell phones pose while driving, Kentucky, like most states, has criminalized certain-phone related activities while driving. Here is a brief synopsis of Kentucky’s laws pertaining to phone use while driving.

  • Novice drivers in Kentucky (under age 18) are prohibited from using cell phones (handheld or hands-free) while driving.
  • No person may text while driving. Texting while driving is a primary offense, meaning that any officer who witnesses this act may stop and ticket a driver for this infraction without witnessing some other offense.
  • School bus drivers are prohibited from using any cellular phone while driving children.

If you have been injured in an car accident by a distracted driver, call attorney Flora Templeton Stuart at (888) 782-9090 24/7. Attorney Flora Templeton Stuart represents injured clients in Warren and Barren Counties, throughout the State of Kentucky, and across the nation.
