The Rhode Island Department of Transportation and Rhode Island State Police are letting drivers know about the upcoming new law requiring hands-free cell phone use.  Federal and state leaders held a press conference on Wednesday at the Triple-A headquarters in Providence to discuss the law, which directs police to pull over a motorist who is observed holding a phone while driving.  A fine of up to 100-dollars is possible for the offense but can be waived for first-time offenders who show proof of purchasing a hands-free device.  The change takes effect on June 1st.
