No more driving down the Boulevard talking on your phone.
Legislation passed by City Council today would ban the use of mobile devices while driving in Philadelphia.
Mayor Michael Nutter is expected to sign the bill, making the ban effective immediately, unless he requests a grace period. It could all happen as early as next week. First time offenders would be fined $150 and then $300 for subsequent offenses.
The plan also extends to bicyclists.
