Things to Know About the New Indiana Hands-Free Law

Posted by April Grunden | Jun 26, 2020 | 0 Comments

New Indiana Driving Rules

The state of Indiana is officially putting a new motor vehicle law into place starting July 1, 2020, banning the use of cell phones while driving. It comes after such a high level of distracted drivers that not only the state, but the country, has seen over the past couple of years.

Currently, the law addresses the use of cell phones with (visual) distracted driving. This includes texting, sending emails, scrolling through social media, and other features that require your focus.

The new law, effective July 1, 2020, includes banning the use of cell phones while operating a moving vehicle, as well as the prior distracted driving provisions.

There is an exception using hands-free features and Bluetooth. However, you may not use hands to make phone calls, shuffle through music, or things alike. Having a phone in your hand will now be an infraction, subject to a ticket, unless it is being used to call 911.

Any infractions will not affect BMV points until July of 2021.

Stay safe and remember to put your phone down when behind the wheel!
