The new law only allows the use of phones through hands-free technology, like Bluetooth.

Those caught using a cell phone behind the wheel could face a 100 dollar fine. Other cities in Idaho including Ketchum and Sandpoint have also banned drivers from using their phones, while state law only prohibits texting and driving.
