Cell phone use while driving soon to be banned in College Station

At its meeting Thursday evening, City Council approved banning the use of wireless devices while driving.
The vote was almost unanimous - one council member voted against the measure saying the language was not specific enough and this should be a state law instead.
Drivers will still be allowed to use handheld devices while at a complete stop. Hands-free devices are still allowed.
The new ban will take effect 90 days from now.
