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.
