AAA Northeast leaders joined state officials, legislators, traffic safety advocates and police officers at the club’s Providence headquarters in May to bring attention to Rhode Island’s new ban on hand-held wireless communication devices while driving.

State Rep. Kathleen Fogarty co-sponsored the new law.

Drivers who violate the law, which took effect June 1, face fines of up to $100.

Diana Imondi, manager of traffic safety programs at AAA Northeast, demonstrates how to use hands-free technology.

To help drivers adapt to the new regulation, AAA Northeast employees demonstrated to media members a variety of ways for drivers to go hands-free. Options range from features like Apple CarPlay, in newer vehicles, to cellphone accessories, for drivers with older vehicles.
