Friedman votes on legislation to prevent distracted driving, enhance public safety

BOSTON – On June 6, 2019, Senator Cindy F. Friedman (D-Arlington) joined her colleagues in unanimously passing legislation to prohibit the use of handheld mobile devices while driving.

“The passage of this bill is a commonsense measure that reaffirms our commitment to enhancing public safety in the Commonwealth,” said Senator Friedman. “This legislation would require drivers to use only hands-free devices while behind the wheel as well as help to reduce the many tragic accidents and injuries that result from distracted driving.  The use of hand-held cellphones while driving is not only a danger to motorists, but to passengers and pedestrians as well, and I’m proud that we took action today to protect our communities and keep our roads safe.”
