In addition to passing restrictions on junior drivers, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed legislation that amends Sections 4527 and 4581(a) and (b) of the Vehicle Code. The proposed legislation prohibits vehicles from having any DVD player, television, or any image display device in a position that the driver can view (with the exception of navigation systems, “related traffic, road and weather information,” and devices that enhance the driver’s view). According to the proposed law, an image display device may not me installed at any location “forward of the back of the driver’s seat.”
