How would we get by without cell phones? Many of us use them to keep up with the family, make business contacts or to tell people we are going to be late, often while driving.
Drivers are prohibited from driving a motor vehicle while using a wireless telephone, unless it is a hands-free device. There are some limited exceptions, such as emergency situations to contact public safety officials. The law is stricter for minors (under 18 years of age). They are prohibited from driving while using any wireless telephone, including a hands-free device, or mobile service device (pagers, texting devices, laptops, etc.). Please get a hands-free device for your cell phone. It is safer for everyone.
