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.
