WHAT YOU CAN AND CANNOT DO UNDER THE NEW HANDS FREE LAW
Monday, July 15, 2019
(KNSI) - We're just weeks away from the new hands free law in Minnesota. Attorney Mike Bryant of Bradshaw and Bryant was a guest of KNSI's Dan Terhaar and he says hands free means exactly that.
"People won't be driving with it up to their ear, you won't be able to have it in your hand, you definitely won't be able to text. It will be clear. You can't have your phone in your hands while you're driving, and that includes at stoplights."
It is already illegal to text and drive in Minnesota, but the new law will also ban actively scrolling to select music, looking up an address on GPS, read or send and email or place a call unless you have hands free technology.
