Senate Bill 1433 has recently failed 15-to-14 during a vote. The bill was a recent piece of legislation that would have made cell phone use illegal while driving. A driver would have been able to make emergency calls, or use the phone if it had a hands free device attached to it.
The defeat of this bill has sent mix reaction across Arizona. Some feel that the bill would have been difficult and questionable to enforce, while others believe that the bills defeat will result in accidents and deaths across the state from distracted drivers using their cell phones.
No one can deny that using a cell phone while driving does increase the likelihood of accidents.
