Another question came in mind, What are new laws there in Arkansas? I'm planning to drive there soon and hopefully live there for 2 years.

I mean that, driving laws for Adults and Teens. I heard different things, but What are official laws over there?

I heard that, can't drive past 11pm for Teens and Adults 11pm-4am, something like that. I don't know. Don't make no sense either.

I think you are getting some bad advise or not understanding what you are reading. Of course you can drive after 11pm if you are an adult. What state would have a law stating people couldn't drive after a certain time at night?

As when I read the drivinglaws for Arkansas, wished everystate had the same laws. It is really too dangerous for teens to be behind the wheel while on a cellphone.

Don't know about some, but I always pull over onto a shoulder on the interstate to make a phonecall if it were very important, and on cities or country roads, I will always park safely away from traffic to talk on a cellphone. Maybe a school lot, or a plaza. If can't find any, gas stations will be around.

Lately, I've seen on the news or yahoo.com, about texting accidents. Just to my concern, how many cellphone texting accidents so far in AR?

Be very careful about pulling off the road to answer your cell phone, espacially at night. A friend of mine did that and was plowed into from behind by a drunk! Drunks are prone to follow the vehicle in front of them. The friend's sons were in the back of his SUV and one suffered very serious injuries.

no Rog, what he said was people period. Yes, lots of states do have the law about teen drivers and a lot do not let teens have anyone under 18 in the car with them for X number of months after they get their license. NJ used to not allow driving until 17, but that may have been changed in the past few years. Peter said he had heard adults and teens, not just teens.
