Bill To Ban Teens From Using Electronic Equipment While Driving

A bill that would ban teens from using electronic equipment while driving is expected to make its way to Governor's Schwarzenegger's desk this week.

The legislation if signed by the governor would ban 16-and 17-year-olds from using any electronic device while driving.

That includes cell phones, text messaging devices, laptop computers,
pagers, walkie-talkies and handheld computers.

It even includes devices with "hands-free" features.

The governor hasn't indicated if he will sign the bill.

If he does, the new rules will go in effect in July.

According to the American Automobile Association, at least 15 states and the District of Columbia have passed similar bans.
