Distracted Driver

Effective October 29, House Bill 95 becomes law and enacts a significant distracted driving deterrent and an effective tool for law enforcement to enforce dangerous driving. House Bill 95 establishes Ohio's unique approach of combating distracted driving by enhancing existing moving violations.

The Ohio Department of Public Safety was tasked with creating a distracted driver course for offenders who plead guilty or are convicted of a specific traffic violation while distracted. This course is available in lieu of paying the enhanced court fine of $100 or less, providing the offender pays the total amount of the fine established by the violation and submits written evidence of completion of the distracted driver course.

The one-hour course discusses what distracted driving is, who is a distracted driver, cell phone distractions, the risks and consequences of driving distracted, and combating distracted driving.
