800 new California laws for 2013


More than 800 new California laws went into effect on Jan. 1

It is now legal to text message while driving as long as it is completely voice operated.  

“It’s still dangerous (to text while driving) because people are not going to pay attention,” said Anh Mai, De Anza electrical engineering major.

“It should be banned because it’s just dangerous,” said Anita Wong, hotel management major. 

Red light cameras installed after Jan. 1 must have signs informing drivers of its existence. 

“Maybe they’re just putting in a red-light camera so that they don’t have to waste a cop just sitting there all the time,” said Jonathan Clark, political science major.

“I think the signs itself are a waste of money. The cameras are a good idea though,” said Michael Angeles, biology Major. 

When minors and alcohol are involved in party carriers, someone at least 25 years of old must be held responsible for the party. Damaged property or person from minors while under the influence, the designee of the party will be convicted.  

“Doesn’t provide strong enough argument for age criteria” said Crystalee Crain, political science professor.

“I think it’s fair because a person they know will guard them. Minors can do crazy stuff,” said Taylor Diaz, undecided first year student.
