FROM THIS EPISODE

Starting tomorrow, you can still listen to your car radio, but you can’t drive and talk on the phone at the same time if you’re holding the phone to your ear. Hands free technology is now required in the interests of safety, but is there really a difference? Also tonight, almost 1500 fires in 10 days -the latest on Northern California.

Main Topic Hands on the Wheel – Cell Phone Law Takes Effect Tomorrow

Driving while talking with a phone to your ear is a crime in California starting tomorrow. It’ll cost 20 bucks for the first offense but no points against your driving record. On the other hand, it’s legal to hold a phone while you’re dialing or sending a text message. The big question is, will  the roads be safer?
