California teen driving laws


California State Assembly bill to ban teen drivers from using cell phone, pager, text-messaging device or laptop


August 2007

“Distractions behind the wheel can turn a good time into a disaster. Leave the cell phones and text messaging for a time when you’re out of the car. Keep your eyes – and mind – on the road.” – Dr. Federico Vaca

Dr. Federico Vaca is an associate professor of clinical emergency medicine and executive director of the Center for Trauma and Injury Prevention Research. A former fellow with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Vaca is an expert on driver safety issues and his research focuses on reducing injuries and fatalities from traffic accidents. He regularly addresses teen driving safety issues.
