WSGW OnLine Poll: Michigan Drivers and Phones (results)

(January 15 – 22)

Michigan is on the verge of a law to prohibit motorists under 18 from using phones while operating a vehicle, except in emergencies. Adults would be exempt from the ban.

Many supporters believe the law should include all motorists, regardless of age, as twenty-one other states already have on their books.

Governor Whitmer did propose a universal hands-free law in her first State of the State Address.

POLL QUESTION: Do you support Michigan banning phone use for motorists under 18, and should it be universal, except for emergencies?
I support banning phones for under 18, but not universal –  16%
I support a universal ban on phones for all motorists –  71%
I don’t support any laws banning phones –  12%
I’m not sure –  1%
