The City of Surprise is considering adopting an ordinance which would prohibit the use of a mobile communications device, such as cellular phones, while operating a motor vehicle. The proposed ordinance would not apply to devices being used in hands-free mode. Additionally, there would be exceptions for anyone communicating an emergency situation to emergency personnel and for public safety personnel involved in official duties.
Community feedback is important to this process. Please review the draft ordinance and provide comments by Monday, August 6 using the links below:
