Pennsylvania drivers would no longer be allowed to talk on a hand-held phone while they operate a vehicle if a recently introduced House bill is passed, reported Lancaster Online.
House Bill 1684 would prohibit anyone 18 and older from talking on the phone while driving, unless they use hands-free accessories. Drivers under 18 wouldn't be allowed at all, even with hands-free accessories.
A violation would result in three points on a driver's license and a fine of $50 for the first offense, and $100 for each subsequent offense.
Exceptions are included in the bill for emergency situations, such as calls to law enforcement officers and first responders. The full list is outlined in the bill.
