Can I talk on the phone while driving?
New Massachusetts Hands-Free Law Coming into Effect on February 23, 2020
OpeningA new law that was signed back in November goes into effect on February 23. The new law will ban any use of a hand-held device while driving – not just texting or scrolling, but also holding your phone to make calls or use GPS.
DiscussionThere is a grace period until the end of March where motorists stopped under the law will only be given a warning. However, after that you would receive a $100 fine for a first offense with subsequent offenses costing you additional fines, surcharges, and even driver training courses.
