New cellphone driving laws go into effect Wednesday in Idaho, Indiana and South Dakota. How effective are similar bans in other states?

Three more states will prohibit the use of hand-held cellphones while driving, beginning Wednesday.

Idaho, Indiana and South Dakota will join 22 other states that already require phones be in hands-free mode, according to the Stateline, an initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts, amid ongoing efforts to reduce distracted driving fatalities across the nation.

The Idaho State Police told the Idaho Statesman that law enforcement will issue warnings until Dec. 31 and work to educate drivers about the new law. Citations will be issued as of Jan. 1, 2021.
