Waupaca County bans hand-held cell phones while driving
Waupaca County has become the first Wisconsin county to ban hand-held cell phones while driving.
Supervisor Jack Penney proposed the ordinance, saying they've had about a dozen traffic accidents in the last year that were cell-related.
The measure passed 26-1. It bans talking, listening, answering, dialing or texting on a cell phone in a way that keeps both hands from being on the steering wheel.
