Hands-on use of mobile devices restricted
At Tuesday night's City Council meeting, council voted to approve Ordinance 27-16, prohibitting the hands-on use of mobile communication devices while driving. Under the new law, drivers must either use hands-free devices to make and receive calls (such as bluetooth in-car and after-market calling systems), or pull out of the flow of traffic to make or receive calls. The law is very similar to laws in place in 14 states and many cities in the Cleveland region. Signage will be installed at all entry-points to the City, and a public information campaign and a warning period will preceed enforcement.
