Note: California defines novice drivers as drivers of all ages under the age of 18.

The first restrictions on cellphone use while driving in California were passed by the Legislature in 2006. Existing laws ban drivers from calling and texting while on the road unless using a hands-free device (e.g. Bluetooth). However, using navigation apps was not illegal under current law. The bill was introduced by Assemblyman Bill Quirk in order to prevent distracted driving.

80 percent of all crashes result from distracted driving/driver inattention. In 2014, 3,179 people were killed, and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle crashes involving distracted drivers.
