If you are teaching a teenage driver, or if you struggle driving without clutching onto your phone, keep reading.
Ohio Governor Mike Dewine has officially signed the Distracted Driving Bill into law.
In a move designed to put a stop to distracted driving, the new bill allows police officers to pull drivers over for “using, holding, or physically supporting” their smartphone while their driving.
Over the last 5 years, according to reports, more than 74,000 car accidents in Ohio have come at the hand of a distracted driver.

Drivers would still be allowed to hold a phone to their ear when stopped at a red light, using speakerphone without holding the phone or holding a phone to their ears for calls, but not using text or typing.
Troopers said drivers ages 15 to 24 make up almost 40% of those crashes.
Before the bill was signed into law, police could only cite drivers for distracted driving after pulling them over for another offense.
