Reminder: CS prohibits cell phone use while driving

By Ofc. Tristen Lopez, CSPD Public Information Officer

More than 30 signs are displayed around College Station to inform motorists that the city’s hands-free mobile device ordinance is in effect. 

The hands-free requirement applies to anyone using a cell phone while operating a vehicle (including a bicycle) on a public roadway in College Station, which includes typing, sending or reading texts, and making calls. Fine amounts range from $25-$500.

You may pick up your device while driving only if:

  • You’re at a complete stop.
  • It’s an emergency.
  • You’re selecting music on your device. (state requirement)

Please don’t drive distracted.
