Laws, They Are a-Changin’

New year, new laws, new you!

New year, new laws, new you!

Did you know you can’t wear earbuds in both ears when driving? But you can drink an adult beverage while riding in a pedicab if your local government allows it? And those hoverboards that your nephew, your neighbor and Mike Tyson all seem to suddenly have? You’re required to wear a helmet whenever you take one for a spin. Those are just a few of the new transportation-related laws now in effect that may change the way you move about your day.

Each year, January 1 brings new laws or changes to existing laws on the books—and it’s up to you to stay informed. But we’re here to help! The DMV Newsroom breaks down the basics on these new rules and regulations for you. Read up and ride smart!
