Govenor Snyder Signs Kelsey's Law

Governor Snyder Signs Kelsey's Law on January 8, 2013.  Pictured from left to right; Bonnie Raffaele (Kelsey's Mother), Govenor Snyder, Courtney Raffaele (Kelsey's Twin Sister), and Ron Raffaele (Kelsey's Father).

Senate Bill 756, sponsored by state Sen. Howard Walker, bans cellphone use for anyone driving on a level 1 or level 2 graduated driver license in Michigan.

The new law is named in honor of Kelsey Raffaele, 17, of Sault Ste. Marie, who died tragically in a cellphone-related automobile crash in 2010. 

Cell phones and other distractions exacerbate a young driver's inexperience and lead to more traffic crashes, which are the No. 1 killer of teens.

SB 756 is now Public Act 592 of 2012 and will take effect in late March.
