Louisiana Drivers Can't Tweet or Post to Facebook

A bill prohibiting posting to social media sites while driving gained final approval with a 34-1 Senate vote on Tuesday. It now heads to Gov. Bobby Jindal's desk.
Violators will face a traffic fine of up to $175 for the first offense and up to $500 for second and subsequent violations.
The bill by Livingston Republican Dale Erdey closes what he called a loophole by adding accessing, reading and posting to social media sites, such as the popular Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, to the prohibited-while-driving list.
