Michigan Implements Ban on Handheld Cellphone Use for Motorists

Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer signed a new law banning handheld cellphone use while driving. The ban includes making calls and scrolling social media but allows hands-free devices. The aim is to improve road safety, as distracted driving fatalities have increased by 12%. The law exempts emergency workers and those contacting 911. The law will take effect on June 30, 2023, targeting the most dangerous time on the road. Families affected by distracted driving support the legislation.
