The new law went into effect Thursday. The new law pertains to phones, computers or other devices that can send texts, emails or similar messages. Police are not allowed to seize the devices when they write tickets.

Law enforcement officials say the ban shouldn’t be too difficult to enforce. Lansdowne Police Chief Daniel Kortan Jr. says texting drivers frequently look away from the road and drift out of their

lanes.

A ban on handheld phone use was part of the bill passed over the summer by the state Senate but was removed before being passed by the House.
