Cell phone driving bill clears House panel

April 08, 2010

ANNAPOLIS (AP) -- A House committee has approved a measure that would require drivers to use handsfree devices to talk on cell phones while behind the wheel.

The House Environmental Matters Committee voted Wednesday to approve a bill that already has been passed by the Senate.

Drivers could only use their hands to turn a phone on and off. They wouldn't be allowed to hold a cell phone during the conversation.

Drivers could be fined $40 for violations, under the bill.
