PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) - Many people believe that when they visit Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix to pick up passengers, all the laws get tossed out the window.

One of the laws is the newest one. It's the hands-free law.

People have completely ignored this new law. It is worthless until they start to fine people. Guess that won't happen till 2021.

The law for hands free is written that when you are stopped you are allowed, so technically, if you are parked in the pickup lane, using your phone, all is good. So yes, it applies while you are driving through the airport, but NOT when you stop and wait and use your phone to let someone know where you are! Same as you are allowed to use your phone when stopped at a red light, etc.

You are not supposed to "stop and wait and use your phone to let someone know where you are". That is illegal at the airport when you are in the "pickup lane". You are not supposed to wait in the pick up lanes, that is what the cell phone lot is for. The pick up lanes are for immediately loading or off loading of passengers only.
