Are Drivers of Commercial Vehicles Prohibited from Using CB Radios Under California Traffic Law

Are Drivers of Commercial Vehicles Prohibited from Using CB Radios Under California Traffic Law  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.

When California’s cell phone law took effect  several years ago on July 1, 2008, while it  required drivers to use a hands-free device while talking on the phone and driving, it did provide exemptions for drivers of Commercial Trucks.

When the law first took effect, drivers of commercial trucks (i.e. Big Rigs and not pick-up trucks) were exempt, along with emergency workers and people driving on private property.

The law once allowed commercial drivers to use a two-way radio operated by a “push-to-talk” feature that did not require immediate proximity to the ear. However… in 2011 everything changed for commercial drivers.

The part of the law allowing them to use a two-way radio with a push-to-talk feature was removed. CB radios are no longer exempt under California’s hands free laws and commercial drivers must use a hands-free device while driving, like any other motorist.  –  blog submitted by ticketbust.com, helping drivers contest and dismiss their traffic tickets.
