Louisiana bill to ban handheld phone use while driving fails – New Orleans, Louisiana

New Orleans, Louisiana 2021-06-08 07:34:00 –

A Louisiana senator has put a brake on a bill that requires people to speak on their cell phones using hands-free devices or speaker mode while driving. Republican Rep. Mike Huval’s proposal was delayed by one vote in the Senate. This required 20 votes, but only with the support of 19 Senators. The House of Representatives had previously voted 77 to 20 in favor of the bill. For years, Huval has tried to ban the use of mobile phones while driving, but has failed. Proponents describe the law as a security measure. Opponents question the premise, suggesting that the bill violates individual liberty.
