AB (Assembly Bill) 1785, also known as the “One Swipe or One Tap – That’s All You Get!” law attempts to further regulate the use of cell phones while driving. It was signed into law on September 26, 2016. We use our phones constantly every day. Our phones are a part of our daily lives. We use it for everything from reading the news, getting on social media, talking to friends, text messaging friends, doing research, watching Youtube, watching Netflix, etc… It is so essential to our daily lives that we use it in our cars while driving. We can’t help it. Sometimes we receive an important phone call or text. We need to respond immediately. We pick up our phones and we make that text or that call. At this point, we are distracted. Auto accidents are more likely to occur when we are distracted. We aren’t giving our full attention to the road. This leads to auto accidents.
One Swipe or Tap – Driving with Cellphone Laws
You already can’t text or hold your cell phone to talk on it while driving. AB 1785 now allows you to use your cell phone as a navigation system but only under certain circumstances. A driver may use a cell phone as a GPS device so long as
(1) it is mounted on a vehicle’s windshield like a mounted GPS or is mounted or affixed to the vehicle’s dashboard or center console that does not hinder the driver’s view of the road; and
(2) the driver’s hand can be used to activate or deactivate a feature or function with a motion of a single swipe or tap of the driver’s fingers.
See that last part? Yep, you get one swipe or tap! Make it count or you might pay! First offense is $20 and $50 for each additional offense.
Along with every thing that seems to be building inside this specific subject material, your opinions tend to be quite stimulating. On the other hand, I appologize, because I do not give credence to your entire plan, all be it stimulating none the less. It seems to me that your opinions are actually not completely justified and in actuality you are yourself not really fully certain of the argument. In any case I did appreciate reading it.
Enjoyed looking through this, very good stuff, thanks. “What the United States does best is to understand itself. What it does worst is understand others.” by Carlos Fuentes.

Many thanks for sharing these kind of wonderful posts. In addition, an excellent travel along with medical insurance plan can often ease those considerations that come with travelling abroad. Some sort of medical crisis can soon become very costly and that’s likely to quickly decide to put a financial stress on the family’s finances. Putting in place the best travel insurance deal prior to leaving is well worth the time and effort. Thanks
