Louisiana Senate Passes Bill Banning Social Media While Driving

A bill prohibiting the use of social media sites while driving was passed by the Louisiana Senate Wednesday.

The bill by Senator Dale Erdey is designed to further prevent accidents caused by distracted drivers. Louisiana Law currently prohibits drivers from reading or sending text messages while driving. Senate Bill 147 seeks to add the use of Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and other social media sites to the law.

If you or a loved one was injured in an accident in which a driver was text messaging, you may be able to recover. Contact Broussard and David at (337) 233-2323 (local) or (888) 337-2323 (toll free) to find out what legal rights you may have.
