SB 194 — Ban cell phone for drivers under 18
Analysis Current law prohibits texting while driving, and also prohibits using a cell phone for voice calls without a hands-free device (bluetooth headset, etc). This bill would also prohibit any use of a cell phone by drivers under 18 years old, even with a hands-free device. In our opinion, this bill is unreasonably restrictive and paternalistic.
