Governor Walker to sign cellphone ban for young drivers
MADISON- Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign a bill that would ban young drivers from using cellphones.
The measure would ban anyone driving a motor vehicle under an instruction permit or a probationary license from using a cellphone or other wireless device.
First-time violators would face a fine of $20 to $40. Repeat offenders would face fines ranging from $50 to $100.
The state Assembly passed the bill unanimously in February. The Senate concurred earlier this month on a voice vote with no debate.
Walker is scheduled to sign the bill Thursday afternoon in Milwaukee.
