(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.
