Hands-free cell phone law goes into effect August 1

Hands-Free Icon

Gov. Tim Walz signed a new hands-free cell phone bill into law April 12 to help further reduce distractions behind the wheel.

Starting August 1, drivers will no longer be able to hold their cell phones in their hands. They will be able to use their phones to make calls, text, listen to music or podcasts and get directions, but only by voice commands or single touch activation without holding the phone.

Visit the HandsFreeMN website or access the Hands-Free Law Fact Sheet for more information.
