Talking On a Cell Phone While Driving in Chapel Hill Becomes Illegal on June 1st

On Monday night, Chapel Hill became the first town in the nation to pass an ordinance that will ban talking on a cell-phone or hands free device while driving a vehicle. The final vote on the matter was 5-4.

The violation for talking on your phone while driving will be $25. Emergency phone calls and calls with a spouse and children will be permitted under the ordinance.

We recently asked out newsletter readers what they thought of full cell phone bans. Check out what they had to say by clicking here.
