Max is a busy business owner that makes it a point to always respond to his email and text messages as soon as he receives them. During a July 4th promotion that he was having, Max’s cell telephone did not stop buzzing with all the emails and text messages that were coming in. As Max was driving and typing going about 75 mph on the interstate, Officer Doright saw him and decided to initiate a traffic stop. Officer Doright issued several driving citations to Max.
Can Officer Doright charge Max for driving and texting pursuant to the new cell telephone law that went into effect on July 1, 2019 that allows a police officer to cite a driver for texting and driving as the primary offense?
Can Max appear in court to dispute these driving citations?
