A new Tennessee law that bans handheld cellphone use while driving goes into effect on July 1, WKRN reports. Starting July 1, drivers caught in violation of the law could face a $100 fine. The citation increases to a $200 fine if the violation results in an accident. Murfreesboro Police Department Cpt. Gary Gensemer said his department is working to prepare for the law to take effect — making sure officers are well-versed on the law, and the city court is ready to handle the workload of initial violations.
