Here’s a proposed law that would make driving a lot less interesting, and we mean that in a good way. The Associated Press has the story:
HELENA (AP) – State lawmakers considered a proposal Thursday to ban cell phone use while driving in Montana, except for the use of hands-free devices such as headsets.
The Senate Highways and Transportation Committee held a hearing on Senate Bill 251, which would levy a $100 fine for using a cell phone to text or talk while driving. The infraction would not go against the driver’s record.
Democratic Rep. Christine Kaufmann of Helena, the bill’s sponsor, called distracted driving an epidemic in the state.
Epidemic? We think maybe she means pandemic.
