Republican senate speaker Ron Ramsey says he opposes a move to ban use of a hand-held cell phone while driving. Ramsey says the state’s ban on texting while driving goes far enough. He notes there are other laws pertaining to distracted driving that cover cell phone use while driving. A house bill advancing through committees would make hand held cell talk a misdemeanor offense punishable by a $50 fine. Hands free devices would be allowed. The highway patrol supports the legislation.
