Parents of high-school-age drivers might want to take note
Wisconsin Act 164 went into effect Nov. 1 banning first-time drivers from driving while using a cellphone. The law was passed last spring.
"I think it's absolutely a good law to have," said River Falls Police Sgt. Jon Aubart. "It's a good one for parents to remind their kids about not using a phone while driving.
"There are enough driving distractions and beginning drivers already have a lot of things they need to pay attention to. Use of a phone divides their attention."
