A new law is under consideration in the Iowa Senate which would make it illegal to hold your phone while driving in the State.
In 2017 we banned texting and driving and this new measure would build on that stopping any hand held use of mobile phones.
“I think our efforts previously have failed, and I think it’s time for stronger measures. I think hands-free is probably the only way we’re going to solve this issue or at least pay more attention to it,” said Iowa Sen. Tim Kapucian, who chairs the Senate’s transportation committee.
“The intent of the Legislature (in 2017) was to send a signal,” said Sen. Zach Whiting, R-Spirit Lake. “Maybe that signal was not received or heard strongly enough.”
So is this a good idea or too much Government control?
