Bill Would Ban Hand Held Cells While Driving

There is a new bill that would expand Maine’s distracted driving laws by banning the use of hand-held cellphones while driving. To me, the surprising part was the bill had little opposition at a public hearing. The bill is written with a bunch of exemptions, like police. Maybe too many exemptions.

In fact, according to the KJ, the executive director of the Maine Chiefs of Police Association said that the bill has too many exemptions. He said police should be subject to the ban and not granted an exemption. Police can be distracted just like anyone else. The bill would expand on existing laws aimed at curbing cellphone use by drivers.
