Lawmakers have already banned teen drivers from using cell phones while driving in an attempt to cut down on the number of North Carolina auto accidents, and there’s already a law that bans others from texting while driving.
A House commerce subcommittee wants to take things further by passing a law that would make using a cell phone while driving illegal unless the motorist can talk with a Bluetooth device, Bloomberg Businessweek reports.
Drivers would be fined $100 if they were caught.
How do you think the use of cell phones contributes to North Carolina auto accidents? Do you think with laws in place, people will put their phones down while driving?
