Text and Drive – Points on your License.

    Starting July 1, 2021, the new version of Vehicle Code section 12810.3 will increase the punishment for using a cell phone while driving: “a violation point shall be given only for a conviction of a violation of subdivision [using a cell phone other than hands free] that occurs within 36 months of a prior conviction for the same offense.”
    Hands free or don’t use the cell phone.

Older Americans Month

Assembly Concurrent Resolution No. 69 “recognizes the month of May 2021 as Older Americans Month” and “encourages all Californians to recognize and treat all older adults with compassion and respect, and to participate in services and activities that contribute to the health, welfare, and happiness of older adults…”  However, the resolution was not passed until June 1, 2021, a testament to the efficiency of government.
