Hands-free cell phone law in effect for a year; many CT residents still ignore it
Connecticut's hands-free cell phone law has been in effect for more than a year. Four-hundred tickets have been issued in Fairfield alone.
Many drivers admit to ignoring the hands-free cell phone law. They say they skip the extra step if they're just driving a couple of blocks. But some drivers at the Fairfield Rest Stop on I-95 were seen putting on their headsets before hitting the highway.
Police say whether you're driving a mile or a hundred, if you're caught driving while chatting on the phone without a hands-free device, it could cost you $100.
