Hands Free Law Passes IN House

The Indiana House endorses a proposal, banning motorists from using handheld cellphones, a step that supporters say is aimed at combating distracted driving. House members voted 86-10 in favor of the bill that only permits cellphone use with hands-free or voice-operated technology, except in emergencies. The bill would broaden the state’s current ban on texting while driving that officials have said is unenforceable. Twenty-one other states already have similar bans. Supporters compared it to the adoption of seat belt laws. The proposal has Gov. Eric Holcomb’s support. It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
