There is a bipartisan proposal for “hands-free” use of cellphones pending in Minnesota.
Cell phones could still be used per the bill, as long as hands-free. Thus, drivers could still answer the phone, listen to music, and the GPS system, whether on the phone or a separate electronic device, but it would have to be one-touch feature or voice activated.
Penalties are $50 fine for the first offense and $225 for future offenses.
