In the first three months since police began enforcing Indiana’s new hands-free driving law, police have stopped 4-thousand drivers for violating the new cell phone law.
Police have written 730 citations and 3,100 warnings.
The hands-free law prohibits Indiana drivers from holding a cell phone while driving.
The fine for driving while holding your cell phone can be up to $500.
Next summer, the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles can also assess points to a driver’s license for violating the new law.
Coronavirus patients in Indiana hospitals have grown to the highest level in five months.

Hospitalizations have increased nearly 65% since Gov. Holcomb lifted his restrictions to slow the coronavirus spread.
