Driving Bills


SB 1141

Senate Bill 1141, distracted driving, prohibits a person from driving a motor vehicle from driving a motor vehicle while distracted. A violation exists under this law if both of the following occur while driving a motor vehicle: (1) the person engages in any activity that is not related to the actual driving of the motor vehicle in a manner that visibly interferes with safely driving the motor vehicle; and (2) the person drives a motor vehicle in a manner that is an immediate hazard to a person or property or the person does not exercise reasonable control of a motor vehicle as necessary to avoid collision.

HB 2318

House Bill 2318, texting while driving; prohibition; enforcement, prohibits a person from operating a motor vehicle either while physically holding a portable communication device (not using an earpiece), or writes, sends or reads any text-based communication. The bill exempts using voice-based communication, navigation, obtaining motor vehicle information, or acts occurring when a vehicle is parked or stopped. Other, situation-specific exemptions are included. The bill lays out penalties for violations and guidelines for ADOT. Penalties range from $75 to $149 for the first offense, $150-$250 for the second offense. Penalties can involve up to $2500 if the driver causes death or physical injury. 

The two bills are consistent with one another. HB2318 addresses a specific driving issue related to cell phones, whereas SB1141 addresses distracted driving more broadly. Distractions that may not be covered by HB2318 are covered by SB1141.
