Louisiana Drivers Can’t Tweet or Post Onto Facebook While Driving

We already know that it is illegal to text while driving in Louisiana, but did you know that it may soon be illegal to post onto social media sites while driving in Louisiana?

A recent bill prohibiting posting to social media sites while driving gained final approval with a 34-1 Senate vote on Tuesday. It now heads to Gov. Bobby Jindal’s desk for his signature of approval.

Those caught on social media sites while driving will face a $175 for the first offense and up to $500 for second and subsequent violations. How will police notice what your doing while driving, let’s just say it is pretty pretty obvious when you have your head down for a few seconds and your typing away.

Often, when police would attempt to cite someone for texting and driving, they would use the loop hole in their defense and often say that they weren’t “texting,” but rather on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. With this latest vote, that loophole has since been erased.
