The Rhode Island Senate has approved a bill to ban all non-hands-free cell phone use in the state.
The bill now goes to the Senate.
If approved, the measure would take effect June 1, 2017.
Senator Susan Sosnowski (D - South Kingstown, New Shoreham) sponsored the bill. Violators would be subject to a fine of $100, which can be suspended if the driver then shows that they've obtained a hands-free device.
