Jackson Town Council yesterday considered on first reading the setting of fines for those who violate the town’s new hands-free requirement for cell phone use while driving. Mayor Mark Barron says police used January as a time to inform drivers of the new law, and this month they are issuing warning tickets. He says all of those warnings are being kept on file so that if a driver is stopped again for cell phone use, a second warning is unlikely. Barron says once the ordinance is passed, there will be three levels for fines depending on the number of violations. Barron says the initial fine is being set at $75, which is the same that the state has set for texting while driving violations. For a second offense, Barron says the fine will go up to $100 , and then $150 and a mandatory court appearance for the third infraction. The ordinance setting the fines has two more readings before it becomes law. Then it will take effect beginning March first.
