FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Kentucky could become the latest state to enact a Hands-Free Driving legislation.
State Reps. James Tipton and Steve Sheldon have pre-filed legislation in the Kentucky House that aims to prohibit the use of personal communication devices while operating a motor vehicle.
This means that, if the law passes, drivers will not be allowed to hold a cell phone in their hand.
The fine for violating the bill would be $100 for the first offense and $200 for each offense afterwards.
The bill would allow first-time offenders to have the option of traffic school.
