New teen drivers must put their phones in park

LANSING — Effective March 28, teen drivers with Level 1 or Level 2 licenses under the graduated driver licensing (GDL) program were prohibited from using a cell phone while driving. Known as Kelsey’s Law, the restriction was named in honor of Kelsey Raffaele, 17, of Sault Ste. Marie, who was tragically killed in a cell phone-related crash in 2010.

Violations of Kelsey’s Law will be a civil infraction with fines up to $100 as well as possible additional costs up to $100. There are no points associated with this civil infraction and it does not impact status in the GDL program. Exemptions to the law include emergency situations and hands-free devices.

In 2011 in Michigan, 52 people were killed and 452 were seriously injured in crashes involving drivers ages 17 and younger. Of those fatalities, 16 were a 14-17-year-old driver.

Level 1 and Level 2 license holders are between 14 years, 9 months old and 17 years old. — G.G.
