California May Crackdown on Drivers with Cell Phones

SAN CLEMENTE, CA - JUNE 2: Catherine Singer dials a cell phone in her car as a truck approaches June 2, 2003 in San Clemente, California. Legislation that would require California motorists to use hands-free devices for cell phones beginning January 1, 2005 cleared a major hurdle when it passed the Assembly May 29. The bill is expected to pass the Senate, but Gov. Gray Davis has not yet taken a position on the measure. California would join New York as the only states with an outright ban on drivers using cell phones without hands-free devices, though at least six other states have some limit on use of phones in vehicles.
