Distracted driving causes serious injury and death to many people in our state. One of the the most serious distractions is the use of electronic devices which include cell phones.  The first step to limit this distraction is new legislation authored by Rep. Frank Hornstein, Rep. Newberger, Rep. Uglem and Sen. Jim Carson.  This is a bi-partisan initiative to keep these devices out of the hands of drivers. This bill would allow law enforcement officers to ticket anyone that is holding a cell phone or any electronic device while their vehicle is in traffic, even at stop lights/signs. The penalty will be the same as the Texting law; $50+ first offense and $225+ for multiple offenses.
