Lawmakers in the Ohio House are considering a distracted driving bill.
House Bill 283 is a revision of the law that would make using a handheld phone a primary offense for adults. Originally it was just for those under the age of 18.
A first offense is a $150 dollar fine or taking a distracted driving course.
If you complete it you won’t have points on your license.
The bill originally wanted to cite people who were looking at their phones while at a stop sign or traffic light, but that has been removed, clearing the way for passage.
