Handheld Device Ban Goes into Effect June 1

5/15/2017 12:00:00 AM

Effective June 1, the use of handheld communications devices, including voice calls, is prohibited while operating a vehicle in the Denton city limits.

Hands-free systems include Bluetooth, mounted or installed units, and other connected devices. A cell phone may be used to answer or terminate a call, or as a GPS unit, if the phone is mounted. The ban extends to all City and TxDOT roadways, including I-35E and I-35W. Violating the new ordinance is a Class C misdemeanor with a fine up to $500.
