Massachusetts Senate Approves Hands-Free Cell Phone Driving Bill

Massachusetts Senate approves hands free cell phone driving ban

Kudos to the Massachusetts Senate for unanimously approving a bill that would require hands-free use of cell phones while operating a motor vehicle.  This bill is essential and overdue given the high rate of car accidents that happen in Massachusetts.  Specifically, this bill will help reduce distracted driving accidents which has plagued the Commonwealth for years.

Those who violate this proposed law will receive a fine of $100 for a first offense, $250 for a second offense, and $ 500 for a third and subsequent offense.

The proposed law permits drivers only to swipe their phones to activate or deactivate hands-free mode on their mobile devices.

If put into law this would help protect all people in Massachusetts from distracted drivers including pedestrians, as well as operators of:
