“Drivers in Idaho are no longer allowed to hold their phones while on the road, even while stopped at a red light or stop sign.
This new law, passed by the Idaho Legislature earlier this summer, became effective July 1. Drivers cannot hold any electronic devices, including phones. Activating GPS, voice-to-text functions and calling are only permitted with voice commands, according to reporting by the Idaho Statesman.
Drivers can hold their phones if their vehicle is stationary and not in a travel lane or if there is an emergency. “
