Exceptions would apply to law enforcement and safety personnel, drivers of emergency vehicles, holders of commercial driver licenses while driving within the scope of their employment, and public transit personnel.The ruling would also exempt drivers if they are reporting reckless or negligent behavior, are in physical danger, of if they’re communicating regarding an emergency situation to an emergency response operator, hospital, clinic, doctor, ambulance service, firefighting service, or law enforcement agency. Article 21 of section 28-1192 of the Arizona Revised Statutes — use of cellular telephones and personal digital assistants while driving — became effective this month.
