Driving while holding a cell phone has just been outlawed in Massachusetts.
Making a call or texting with a cell phone while driving is now illegal – and according to the State Police, the law will be enforced on the State’s highways.
Local police departments will also be implementing policies to enforce the law, which was signed into effect Monday afternoon at the State House by Governor Charlie Baker.
This means that all Everett drivers using cell phones while driving on the city’s many streets will be subjecting themselves to possible enforcement by the Everett Police Department.
