Yavapai County Cell Phones BANNED While Driving

Yavapai County Cell Phones BANNED While Driving

A new ordinance was recently passed in Yavapai County regarding cell phone use.

The ordinance states, “A person shall not drive a motor vehicle while holding in his or her hand, typing on or otherwise manually operating a portable communications device.”

Exemptions are as follows:

  • Allowance for hands-free Mobile devices

  • Use while pulled off the side of the road with the vehicle in park

  • To communicate an emergency to law enforcement or fire agencies, ambulance, or physician’s office

  • Private property

  • Emergency vehicle drivers may use devices in the performance of official duties

A first violation carries a $100 penalty, plus other assessments and surcharges. If the motorist is involved in a motor vehicle crash, a civil penalty of $250 could result.Yavapai County is now the third county to approve an ordinance banning cell phone use while driving. State leaders have tried to create a state-wide band, but so far have been unsuccessful. Arizona and Montana are the only states that don’t have a ban on texting while driving, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

So, remember this next time you get behind the wheel!
