H 144 Hands Free NC - The PCS for House Bill 144 would repeal all of the existing statutes regulating the use of mobile phones and associated technology and would enact a new statute regulating the use of wireless communication devices while operating a motor vehicle for all drivers. The PCS would specifically define "operate a motor vehicle" to include any time the vehicle is being operated on a highway or public vehicular area, unless the vehicle is pulled over in a location where the vehicle can safely remain stationary (i.e. not stopped at a stop light in traffic).
