The Beverly Hills Police Department is looking for drivers violating the state’s hands-free cell phone law in April during Distracted Driving Awareness Month.
“Holding your phone and using it while driving is not only dangerous but also illegal,” BHPD Chief Mark G. Stainbrook said. “Before starting the car, silence your phone or put it in the glove box, trunk or back seat. Anywhere you can’t reach.”
According to the 2022 California Statewide Public Opinion Survey, nearly 72% of drivers said that distracted driving because of texting was their biggest safety concern.
Drivers are not allowed to hold a phone or electronic communications device while operating a vehicle under state law. It includes talking, texting or using an app. Using a handheld cell phone while driving is punishable by a fine. Violating the hands-free law for a second time within 36 months of a prior conviction will result in a point being added to a driver’s record.
