Lawmakers Say, 'No"
Bills that would have outlawed using hand-held cellphones while driving and required motorcyclists to wear helmets on Maine roads were turned down by the lawmakers Transportation Committee.
Cell Ban 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.
