In July 2020, Indiana passed a law banning driving while using a cellphone. Now stats are out detailing interaction Indiana State Police had with drivers.
The ban took effect July 1, replacing a narrower ban on texting while driving, which police said was
difficult to enforce. In the first six months of the new law, police issued about 1,900 tickets for
violating the ban after it took effect in July. But State Police spokesman Ron Galaviz says officers
issued nearly three times that many warnings. He says the main focus was on making people aware
of the law. He says the balance is shifting more towards enforcement now.WIBC
