After almost a week of implementing the Anti-Distracted Driving Law or RA 10913, there are still a lot of confusion about its limitations and exceptions. What is clear is that this law aims to protect all drivers from any possible road accidents caused by distracted driving. However, lots of drivers are still clueless on whether they are offending the law, who are the people authorized to apprehend them or what are the penalties they will face if they violate the law. To give a more brief and understandable view about the newly-implemented driving law, we listed 10 clarifications about the anti-distracted driving law.
Note, LTFRB spokesperson Atty. Aileen Lizada reiterates that they are in contact with other government agencies to consider various concerns from motorists. As of now, the board wants to focus more on the information drive about the law and their next meeting will be on May 23.
RA 10913 or Anti-Distracted Driving Law is the newest driving law which prohibits all drivers from using any devices that will make them lose their sight from the road. To be more particular, these include communication gadgets like cellphones, any electronic devices, computing devices which are strictly not allowed to be used while the car is in motion, in traffic or at a stoplight. In short, using of any devices is not allowed until they reach their destination.
