Walker Signs Bill Banning Young Drivers From Cell Use

Friday, March 30th, 2012 at 6:48 am

Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that bans young drivers from using cellphones.

The measure bans anyone driving a motor vehicle under an instruction permit or a probationary license from using a cellphone or other wireless device.

First-time violators face a fine of $20 to $40. Repeat offenders face fines ranging from $50 to $100.

The state Assembly passed the bill unanimously in February. The Senate concurred earlier this month on a voice vote with no debate.

Walker signed the bill on Thursday in Milwaukee.
