Indiana Bill Would Prohibit Cell Phone Use by Drivers in Moving Vehicles

February 25, 2004

An Indiana state lawmaker wants to prohibit people from using mobile phones – even “hands-free” devices – while they drive, according to WRTV television.The bill, sponsored by state Sen. Rose Ann Antich-Carr, would make Indiana the first state to ban hands-free cell phones for drivers.She cited safety as the reason for her proposal. “I truly believe cell phones are one of the major causes of accidents,” Antich-Carr told Indianapolis' WRTV.The infraction would be a secondary offense, meaning police could only ticket drivers if pulled over for some other offense. Violators could be fined $1,000.SB131 would exempt emergency calls.
