Two bills addressing the issue of cell phone use while driving have been introduced in the Legislature. 

Senate Bill 140, sponsored by Henderson Senator Shirley Breeden, would levy a 250-dollar fine for those who chat or text while driving.  The fines would increase for repeat offenders, and drivers convicted for a third time would have their drivers licenses suspended for six months. 

A second bill, introduced by Senator Mark Manendo of Las Vegas,  would ban underage drivers from using a cell phone or texting.  Several other measures targeting phone and text activity while driving are being prepared for this year’s Legislature.
