2014: New Laws Affecting CA Drivers

With the new year comes new legislation affecting all us California drivers. They include:

  • A ban on teen drivers from using electronic devices to read, write, or send text based messages - even if the devices have "hands-free" capacity.
  • A 3 ft passing distance requirement for drivers passing bicyclists.

For the DMV full list, check out https://www.dmv.ca.gov/pubs/newsrel/newsrel13/2013_41.htm 

The new year is also a great time for a "coverage check-up" to make sure all your information and coverages are up to date. Call us for a free consultation at (626) 574-1000. 

We wish you all a happy, safe, and prosperous 2014!
