New Law Would Ban Driver´s Cell Phone Use

Sponsored by:

Assemblyman Joe Simitian believes in keeping both hands on the steering wheel – even when you’re on the phone. The Palo Alto Democrat is trying to get approval for a bill that would ban drivers from using hand-held cell phones. Simitian says cell-phone use is the Number One cause of driver-distracted accidents. A first offense under Simitian´s bill could result in a $20 fine. Subsequent violations would carry a maximum fine of $50. Drivers could use hands-free cell phones without threat of a penalty.
