Minnesota Legislators Seek Cell-Phone Limits in Vehicles

October 19, 2004

Two Minnesota state legislators vowed to continue pushing for a law that would limit drivers’ use of cell phones, according to Land Line magazine. The announcement follows an Oct. 10 head-on crash that killed three brothers on Minnesota 50 near Farmington. According to The Associated Press, the other driver, who survived the crash, had been talking on his cell phone. Reps. Phyllis Kahn of Minneapolis and Mindy Greiling of Roseville – both of the Democratic Farm Labor party – were co-authors of a House bill in 2003 that would have required drivers to use “hands-free” devices while talking on mobile phones. The bill died in the House Transportation Policy Committee without a hearing, but Kahn said she and others are committed to trying again when lawmakers gather for the legislative session that begins in January.
