Transportation Concerns are a Priority in Southern Prince George’s County

Many of the residents who drive in Oxon Hill have experienced what has become a very high volume, and somewhat dangerous daily commute during the evening rush hour.  How many times have we seen congestion along Indian Head Highway at the Wilson Bridge Drive and Livingston Road/Kerby Hill Road intersections? 

How many times have we seen the Oxon Hill Road main corridor congested with Rivertowne Shoppers as well as workers traveling home for the evening?  With the addition of the National Harbor, the BRAC re-alignment that is due next year, as well as growing communities in Oxon Hill, Fort Washington, Accokeek, and areas in Charles County, now is the time to address this matter. 

Maryland Cell Phone Ban Begins

Maryland residents and those residents who travel through Maryland need to know that on Friday, October 1, 2010 (this Friday) - cell phone use will become illegal while driving. The offense will be a "secondary" offense, meaning that offenders can only be cited with it if they are pulled over for another primary offense like speeding or running a red light.

Beginning on Friday, people who wish to make a call while driving MUST use a hands free device. The fine will be $40 for the first offense and $100 for subsequent violations of the law.

Texting while driving has been illegal for some time now and already carries a fine.

Maryland is following suit with several other states with cellular phone bans while in operation of a motor vehicle, but it is one of the only (if not the only) state to list the law as a "secondary" offense.
