Wisconsin texting while driving law
Texting while driving is against the law in Wisconsin – period. If a driver must send a text message they’re required by state law to pull over and park in a safe place first. [Wisconsin Statute §346.89]
This statute is a primary enforcement law, which means a driver can be pulled over for this offense alone.
Other state laws on cell phone use while driving:
Drivers are permitted to talk on a cell phone while driving. Drivers with a learner’s permit or probationary license are not permitted to use a cell phone while driving except in an emergency.
Wisconsin drivers are prohibited from using a cell phone in a road work zone (except in case of emergency).
A driver who was texting and caused a collision can be found negligent and held accountable – if it can be proved. This is where you’ll want an experienced attorney on your side.
Steve Caya works with all necessary professionals, including accident reconstruction experts, doctors and rehabilitation specialists to build the strongest possible case. Police reports, witness statements and phone records can also be used to prove the other person was texting while driving and secure the compensation you need to recover.
