Hands-free cell phone legislation introduced

A bipartisan bill would restrict drivers to hands-free use of their cell phones while driving in Minnesota.

Karen Zamora of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Rep. Mark Uglem, R-Champlin, and Rep. Frank Hornstein, DFL-Minneapolis, are co-authoring a bill that would make it illegal to use a cellphone while driving unless the phone is a hands-free device.

The two will announce the bill Tuesday morning at a news conference along with other legislators, safety experts and a family that was directly affected by a distracted driver, Hornstein said.
