Here's something for all you cellphone users to think about. Governor Brown has been sent a bill, for his consideration, that would raise the fine for illegally using a cellphone while driving.
The fine would increase $10 - to $30. However, the fine for a first-time offense under the bill approved Tuesday in the California Senate would climb from about $160 to about $200, which would include court fees. Repeat offenders would pay about $370, up from about $280 and in addition, they would receive points to their driving record, potentially increasing their car insurance costs.
The bill was created in hopes of reducing deaths and collisions by discouraging the use of hand-held cellphones.
