The Nation | IN BRIEF / WASHINGTON, D.C.

January 08, 2004|From Times Wire Reports

Motorists soon will have to holster their cellphones while driving in the U.S. capital or face a fine, under legislation approved by the City Council.

The measure, effective July 1, would limit cellphone use by drivers to those who use "hands-free" devices or people making emergency calls; violators would be fined $100, local media reported.

Mayor Anthony Williams supports the measure and said he would sign it into law.
