New Teen Cell Phone Ban Takes Effect On Thursday, AAA Michigan Advises

DEARBORN, Mich., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new state law banning novice teen drivers from talking on the cell phone while driving goes into effect this Thursday ( March 28, 2013), AAA Michigan reminds new teen drivers and their families.

The new law, referred to as "Kelsey's Law," is named for Kelsey Raffaele, a 17-year-old Michigan resident who was killed while talking on her cell phone and driving.  Under the law, which was signed by Gov. Rick Snyder on Jan. 8, teenage drivers with a Level 1 or 2 license will have to comply with cell phone restrictions.

Numerous studies have shown that new teen drivers are far more likely to be involved in cell phone-related crashes than older, more experienced drivers.  AAA strongly encouraged passage of the law.

To help new teen drivers – and their parents – AAA offers a web site, TeenDriving.AAA.com.  This comprehensive resource provides extensive state-specific information and useful tools to help teens improve their driving skills.  New drivers will find interactive exercises, quizzes and games as well of videos of experts and teens talking about safety.
