Junction City Cites Dozens For Cellphone Use

KSAL StaffOctober 22, 2014

Despite months of advance notice, dozens of drivers in Junction City were cited for improper use of cellphones during the initial week of enforcement of a new law.

KJCK Radio reports police issued 51 citations from Monday through Friday of last week for talking on hand-held cellphones while driving. One person was also cited for texting while driving.

Junction City adopted an ordinance in June banning motorists from talking or listening on a cellphone unless it’s a hand-held device.

Police delayed enforcement until the city put up signs notifying drivers of the law. The signs went up in September, and police issued warnings for four weeks before handing out citations.

Drivers may still hold cellphones to their ears in limited circumstances, such as talking to law enforcement in emergencies.
