Starting July 1, 2008, California drivers will be required to use hands-free technology when using a mobile phone while driving, and drivers under age 18 will be prohibited from using a mobile phone while driving. This report analyzes hands-free laws across states, discusses how fatalities changed in states after a hands-free law was introduced, and estimates the reduction in fatalities California can expect.
