Oregon bill may prohibit cell phone use while driving

A pair of Oregon House bills will attempt to prohibit handheld cell phone use for all drivers. Currently driving while on a handheld phone is only prohibited for drivers under the age of 18.

The potential law (HB 2038 or HB 2377) would give law enforcement the ability to stop a driver even when they are driving perfectly safely.

These are worthless bills. The Careless Driving law already makes it illegal to drive in a manner that endangers persons or property. Leave safe drivers to their cell phones. Ticket those that are a hazard under the Careless Driving statute.
