Ask a Trooper: Some bus drivers exempt from hands-free rule
Q: My understanding is that it is illegal for commercial drivers to use a hand-held mobile phone while they are driving. Is that true? Specifically, I am wondering about a particular bus service. I use a local bus service occasionally, and there are a couple of drivers who get calls (I believe they are personal calls, not of the emergency type) and talk while they are driving.
