Senate approves Anti-Distracted Driving Act or SBN 3211
Louie Diangsonm writing for Yugatech;
The Senate has approved on its final reading SBN 3211, or the Anti-Distracted Driving Act, which would prohibit and penalize “distracted driving.”
The bill is self-explanatory, don't drive when you're distracted or doing something that will impede your ability to drive properly, else you'll be penalized with;
a fine of Php5,000 for the first offense;
a fine of Php10,000 for the second offense;
a fine of Php15,000, plus with suspension of driver’s license for 3 months for the third offense;
a fine of Php20,000 and revocation of driver’s license for the fourth or final offense.
Of course there are exemption to this ...
