Texas senator proposes statewide hands free cell phone law (SB43)

How would you feel about new restrictions on cell phone use behind the wheel, even outside of school zones? South Texas lawmaker Judith Zaffirini has proposed a bill that would require everyone go hands-free while driving.

MORE | Senate Bill no. 43
