Talking on Your Phone While Driving?

If you’re visiting Los Angeles or have just moved to L.A., you might need to call someone for directions or to let your family know you’ve arrived. But beware, it’s illegal in California to use a mobile phone without a hands-free headset while driving. If you’re a new resident, it’s worth investing in a Bluetooth or other type of headset for those times when you need to talk on the phone while in the car. If you’ll be visiting Los Angeles, don’t forget to pack your headset — tickets for disobeying this recently-passed law can be expensive and put a dent in your otherwise enjoyable trip.
