Wisconsin Cell Phone Ban for Inexperienced Drivers

March 29, 2012 Updated Mar 29, 2012 at 8:17 PM CDT

Madison, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) - Young motorists in Wisconsin will now have to hang up before they drive.

Governor Scott Walker signed a new law Thursday that prohibits inexperienced drivers from using cellular telephones.

Specifically this law prohibits an individual driving a vehicle with an instructional permit or probationary license from using a cell phone or wireless telephone.

The only exception would be to report an emergency.

Governor Walker said quote, "Learning to drive is a major responsibility." Part of that responsibility he said is focusing on the road.
