Recent Changes to Distracted Driving Law in Ohio

House Bill 95, a new Ohio law aimed at cutting down on distracted driving in the State, recently went into effect, and it signifies some big changes for local drivers. The bill enhances existing moving violations to the extent that law enforcement officers no longer will need to prove a driver is texting, but only that a moving violation has occurred and the driver was distracted at the time, according to the DPS. According to the Ohio Department of Public Safety (DPS), it will be a significant deterrent and an effective tool for law enforcement.
