Pima County announces 60 day grace period on new "hands-free" ordinance

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON -

Pima County announced Wednesday there will be a 60-day grace period when the new "hands-free" ordinance goes into effect on June 1.

Pima County passed a new ordinance May 2 which prohibits using an electronic device while driving in Pima County. Use of a two-way radio will not be a violation of this ordinance. 

The City of Tucson and Oro Valley have also recently enacted ordinances cracking down on distracted driving.

Oro Valley has been issuing warnings since adoption of their ordinance in January and expects to continue its educational efforts through the summer before issuing citations. 

The City of Tucson began issuing citations when their ordinance went into effect May 1.

In 2014, 3,179 people were killed and 431,000 were injured in motor vehicle collisions involving distracted drivers. One of the ways to combat this is to have legal consequences for the use of an electronic device while driving.
