Police Crack Down On Cell Phone Use While Driving

Posted: Updated:
BOZEMAN -

Drivers in Bozeman need to pay close attention to the road next week.

On Monday, the Bozeman Police Department will increase patrols to crack down on the number of people using their cell phones while driving. The Hands Free Ordinance went into effect in January of 2012.

Still, some are unaware of the ordinance. Officers said distracted driving is unsafe and increases the risk of getting into a crash.

"It's a good time to just get the word out and educate the drivers that do not know about the ordinance," said Rick Musson, Bozeman Police Department. 

Last year, the Bozeman Police Department gave out 106 citations for cell phone use while driving. If pulled over for using your cell phone while driving, a fine of $100 can be imposed.
