Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 12, 2011 3B On texling and teenage ctrivers ASK GEORGE GEORGE VAI.VERDE Director, CA Dept of Motor Vehicles Do you have questions about general driving related requirements like registra- tion and insurance? Are you unclear about laws and re-. strictions related to driving? The California Department of Motor Vehicles has answers. Save time by going online at Q: I live in Nevada and frequently travel by car to California on business. Do the new text messaging and cellphone laws apply to me as well? A: These laws apply to anyone driving in California, even if the driver is just visiting. In order to prevent cellphone related collisions both laws prohibit drivers from using electronic wireless communication devices to write, send or read text-based messages; motorists are required to use a hands-free device when talking on their ceUphone while driving. The base fine for the first offense is $20 and $50 for subsequent convictions. However, with the addition of penalty assessments, the total amount can be more than triple the base fine. To learn about these laws in greater detail, visit gov/cellularphonelaws/ index.htm. Q: I am applying to become a commercial truck driver. What documents do I need to bring with me to the DMV? A: Good question. The following link contains all the required documents, forms and prerequisites to- ward obtaining a commercial driver license: gov/commercial/commercial .htm. However, remember to save an extra trip to the DMV and make sure to bring your valid Social Security Card, because this is one of the most commonly forgotten items on application day. Q: My daughter is 16 and just received her driver license last week. She wants to drive her best friend, who is also 16, to school. Is it OK if she receives a letter of approval from her friend's parents? A: No. Even with the permission of a parent, your daughter may not drive with anyone under the age of 20 unless a licensed driver over 25 is in the vehicle. She also may not drive between the hours ofll p.m. and5 a.m. without a licensed driver over 25. These restrictions are in place for the first 12 months your daughter is licensed. The DMV website has a section dedicated to new drivers and their parents with more details on new driver restrictions. To view the page, visit, and under the Home tab, click Teens. I encourage you to visit the page to learn about the provisions your daughter will have to follow over the next year. The DMV is a department under the Business, Trans- portation and Housing Agency, which is under the direction of Acting Under- secretary Tract Stevens. CHP helps Caltrans Concerned about a spike in highway worker deaths, the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has partnered with the California Highway Patrol (CHP) to provide enhanced speed and DUI enforcement in highway construction and maintenance zones across California. Four Caltrans workers have died in traffic-related incidents in the last year. Three of them were killed within 48 days, during May and June. Those deaths reversed a steady trend of reduced fatalities, which is partially attributed to the "Slow for the Cone Zone" public awareness campaign established in 1999. A total of 178 Caltrans workers have died on the job since 1924. "Motorists often automati- cally slow down when they see police or CHP officers," said Caltrans Interim Direc- tor Malcolm Dougherty. "We also want them to slow down for Caltrans vehfcles and equipment." The CHP officers will park their patrol vehicles within work zones. Caltrans hopes that the presence of the offi- cers will help to slow traffm or encourage vehicles to move over at least one lane from a highway work zone, as re- quired by the Move Over law. "Adhering to this law can mean the difference between life and death," said CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow. "The only way to prevent tragedies from occurring on the side of the road is by giving emergency personnel, highway workers and the public some space." The CHP will also employ one or more additional enforcement vehicles at some work zones. VITALS, from page 2B Maternal grandparents are Linda Shaffer, of M0desto, and Daniel Shaffer, of Oak- dale.
