No Grace On New Cell Phone Law

by The Editors on June 30, 2008

While the O-side Police Department is giving residents a one-month grace period before enforcing the new “hands free cellphone law (California Vehicle Code 23123 and 23124)” that goes into effect tomorrow (July 1, 2008), Carlsbad officers are going to dive right in and begin handing out tickets right away, according to a story in the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Carlsbad police Lt. Kelly Cain said his city’s officers will be given the same discretion in issuing tickets or warnings that they have with any other traffic violation.

So remember to keep those cellphones below the window when you’re texting your way down Coast Highway.
