Hands Free Driving Bill Soon to Become Law in Minnesota
As we move into summer, we here in Minnesota are approaching the August 1 effective date of Minnesota’s Hands-free Law. At that time, it will be illegal to hold your phone while making calls, changing music or issues GPS commands. Currently 19 states have hands-free laws but please know that distracted driving is unsafe in all 50 states and everywhere.
Recently I wrote Nugget #44 Hands-Free Phone Use While Driving that includes recommendations based on a list provided by the Minnesota Department of Safety. It’s a good list for you to consider as you develop your hands-free approach wherever you live.
