SPD Cracks Down On Cell Phone Ban In Vehicles
Cell phone crackdown. Springfield Police say they've issued hundreds of citations to people using cellphones while driving more.
The hands-free law went into effect six months ago.
SPD has cited more than 300 drivers who were holding a cell phone next to their ear.
The main excuse drivers give is that they are unaware of the ban.
A Sangamon County undersheriff says compliance will go up as more people buy hands-free devices and more vehicles support them.
