Gov. Walker signs cellphone ban for young drivers
MILWAUKEE- Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that bans young drivers from using cellphones.
The measure bans anyone driving a motor vehicle under an instruction permit or a probationary license from using a cellphone or other wireless device.
First-time violators face a fine of $20 to $40. Repeat offenders 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 signed the bill on Thursday in Milwaukee.
