Oro Valley's hands-free enforcement grace period ends

ORO VALLEY, Ariz. (KGUN9-TV) - Oro Valley police are about to crack down on distracted drivers.

For the first several months of the year, the town's officers were instructed to educate violators about the law rather than punish them. Starting Friday, drivers will be issued citations.

The law allows drivers to mount their phones in vehicles or use bluetooth. Drivers cannot check or use their phones during stop lights. 

If you violate the law and are caught using your phone, expect to pay a citation: 

  • 1st - $50
  • 2nd - $100
  • 3rd - $200
