    HB229: Cell Phones while Driving

    Regardless of how you feel about the combination of cell phones and driving, this bill does not seem to do much to address the issue but a great deal to generate a little bit of revenue at the expense of a good scapegoat. This law provides for no stricter punishment for actually causing an accident or some kind of damage due to cell phone use, does not assess points for this supposedly dangerous behavior, but can cost up to $200. Is statewide crime so low that police have nothing more pressing to do with their time than collect a little spare spending money for the state?

    This bill can still be vetoed by Governor Markell. Please call him at 302-744-4101 and voice your opinion on HB229.
