The new Mobile Devices and Driving (AB 1222) law removes a specialized mobile radio device and two-way messaging device from the list of devices specifically included as an electronic wireless communication device.
Existing law in California makes it a crime to drive a motor vehicle while holding and operating a handheld wireless telephone or electronic wireless communications device. The law defined an electronic wireless communications device as including, but not limited to, a broadband personal communication device, a specialized mobile radio device, a handheld device or laptop computer with mobile data access, a pager, or a two-way messaging device. This amendment removes a specialized mobile radio device and a two-way messaging device from the list of devices included in the definition of electronic wireless communication device.
