Hands Off: Wilmington's Ban on Use of Handheld Cell Phone While Driving Takes Effect
Effective today (January 1, 2010), anyone caught talking on a handheld cell phone while driving a motor vehicle (or riding a bicycle) in Wilmington, Delaware will face a $50 fine.
This measure, passed by Wilmington City Council on August 20th, also bans the use of cell phones for texting and emailing. There are exemptions from the ban for emergency use of phone, law enforcement and emergency personnel who need to make work-related phone calls from their cell phones while driving.
