No Unanswered Text Is Worth Someone’s Life
If you have ever looked around while stopped at a traffic light, you’ve seen it. Drivers fiddling with their onboard technology, sending text messages, tilting their heads to balance a phone. Driving safely seems to be the last thing many drivers are focused on. Distracted or inattentive driving is more than annoying, it is dangerous. Distracted drivers cause many serious injuries and deaths every year in Minnesota.

Minnesota’s Hands-Free Law
It is not just a bad idea to use distracting devices behind the wheel; it’s illegal. The Hands-Free law that went into effect in 2019 bars drivers from:
- Holding their phone in their hand
- Video calling
- Video live-streaming
- Using non-navigation apps
- Reading texts
There are exceptions for holding your phone to obtain emergency assistance. The law allows drivers to call, text, listen to music, get directions via voice commands or single-touch activation without holding their phone.
