Increase in Fines Coming to Helena

Posted: Updated:
HELENA - A change about to come to those in Helena when it comes to the combination of your cell-phone and driving.

Starting this Tuesday, the fine for using your phone or any electronic mobile device in the capital city will increase to $105 which is up from the original $75.

Judge Bob Wood hopes that higher fine will prevent repeat offenders in violation of the law.

A total of 132 citations were written from January to March and then 163 in the last quarter by Helena law enforcement.     

The city ordinance says that hands free devices while driving are allowed.
