The bill would would make "distracted driving" a primary offense

Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine has announced details of a new bill that will strengthen the state’s laws on the use of hand-held devices while behind the wheel.

The new Hands-Free Ohio bill is sponsored by Sen. Stephanie Kunze (R-Hilliard) and Sen. Sean J. O'Brien (D-Bazetta).

"The use of wireless devices while driving has become so common that many drivers don't stop to consider the deadly consequences," Gov. DeWine said. "Although Ohio's current laws are well-intended, they simply haven't gone far enough to change the culture around using technology behind the wheel. By strengthening Ohio's laws, we believe we can change behaviors, prevent crashes, and save lives."
