New Law To Further Restrict Cell Phone Use While Driving

CORONA ( — You’ve seen it before, drivers holding their phones and checking their GPS or fiddling with a playlist.

Now a new state law is expanding cell phone safety behind the wheel.

State officials say accidents are on the rise because of cell phone use. Gov. Jerry Brown has signed a new law making it illegal to hold and operate a cell phone for any reason while driving.

The new law takes effect January 1. Fines start at $20.

“All you have to do is wait until you come to a complete stop, because at the end of the day everyone is losing lives,” Tamika Yarbrough said.

“I can’t always trust Siri with the correct directions, sometimes you have to look down just to see where you’re going,” Aaron Montgomery said.

If you have a cell phone holder attached to the car, you can still legally swipe at the phone while driving. However, launching apps and surfing the web will be outlawed.

“I don’t touch the cell phone at all unless I’m at a complete stop or at a parking lot,” Michael Dominguez said.

    I love this law the fines should be more then $20.00 make it 100.00 and people would stop using there cell phones while driving.

    Actually, the fines should be steeper: 1st offense = $100, 2nd offense = $200 and warning of potential insurance hike, 3rd offense = $350 plus must attend traffic school or insurance will be hiked. These will stop people for sure.

  3. As a 30-year Paramedic, my partners & I have seen more cell-phone “blood” than you can imagine. The ugly reality in America is this:

    The smarter the technology, the stupider the human using it.

    And now that cell phones are here, nothing on this planet short of the death penalty, is going to change this vapid, robotic behavior.

      You want to know another thing about Transgender people. Well, you pu$sies think I need so much protection when I already get paid more licking buttlips than what most of you’ll ever see with or without these people. Jail is punishment, but constitutionally it can’t be “cruel or unusual,” so every time you brain dead pu$sies give in and vote for more tough on crime laws check the “ferry dust” coming from my butt. Transgender is not sexual deviance, know your terms, dumba-$ses.

      I’m MIKE, the Original Internet PU$SY BlTCH, I get b1tch slapped by GROWAPAIR so lick I PATRICPARAMEDIC’s BUTTH0LE and use jack off screen names

      Apparently, the BlTCH is so “smart” it must use an abacus to get online to show it’s a butt licking blowhard buffoon.
