SURPRISE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) - While the state of Arizona does not have a specific hands-free law, more and more towns and cities are banning the use of a mobile device without being hands-free.
In Surprise, there's an ordinance that bans cellphone use behind the wheel unless the driver is using a hands-free function. That's a requirement even while drivers are stopped at a red light or while in motion.

Stanley Roberts paid a visit to Surprise and received a less than warm welcome from people who weren't following the law.
Drivers violating the ordinance face a fine of up to $250.
Cities and towns across Arizona have enacted similar bans even as the state Legislature has failed to pass a law to prevent distracted driving. Arizona and Montana are the only states in the country that do not have distracted driving laws.
