Bensalem cell phone driving ban begins today

    Whether you’re cruising along the river in Bristol or speeding down I-95, don’t get caught chatting while driving in Bensalem. It’ll cost you.

    As Jen Howard reports for WHYY, the township will charge you $150 to $300 if you’re caught texting or talking on the phone while driving — even when you’re passing through on the interstate. Don’t bother looking for warning signs; Director of Public Safety Fred Harran says posting signs about the law would be “ridiculous.”
