Vehicle Code 23123.5 works alongside 23123 to further extend the prohibitions of cell phone and wireless device usage while driving. Code 23123.5 explains that no driver of a motor vehicle is permitted to use an electronic wireless communications device to write, send, or receive text-based communication. More simply, do not "text" while driving.
This means that not only are drivers prohibited from talking on hand-held cell phones, but they are also not allowed to communicate to anyone via text-based conversation either on the cellphone, or through a lap top or other device.
To clarify this section, typing in a telephone number or pushing a button to receive a call is not considered sending a text-based message. Typing in a telephone number may be done if using a hands-free wireless device.
Like its other counterparts, this code has the same fines of $20 for the first offense and $50 for each continuing offense, and does not apply to emergency service professionals in the event of an emergency.
