BATON ROUGE, La. (KTAL/KMSS) – Holding your cellphone while driving could become illegal in Louisiana.
The Louisiana State House Committee on Transportation, Highways and Public Works approved a bill that outlaws handheld cellphone use while driving. The bill requires drivers to use a hands-free device.
It’s already illegal to text and drive and visit social media sites while driving in Louisiana.
The bill now moves to the full house.
