Gov. Walker signs cell phone ban for young drivers

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gov. Scott Walker is expected to sign a bill that would ban young drivers from using cell phones.

The measure would ban anyone driving a motor vehicle under an instruction permit or a probationary license from using a cell phone or other wireless device.
First-time violators would face a fine of $20 to $40. Repeat offenders would face fines ranging from $50 to $100.


The state Assembly passed the bill unanimously in February. The Senate concurred earlier this month on a voice vote with no debate.

Walker is scheduled to sign the bill Thursday afternoon in Milwaukee.
