Use of Telephone While Driving Dismissed in Rhode Island

May 2023

Our client was driving their car and was accused of using their telephone with operating a motor vehicle. Rhode Island General Law 31-22-31 states no person shall operate a motor vehicle while using a hand-held device while the vehicle is in motion. It is a traffic violation that can result in a $100 fine and a conviction on your driving record. This can cause an increase in your insurance premiums. 

After a hearing, the charge was dismissed, which avoided this charge from going on our client's driving record. 

Practice area(s): Speeding / Traffic Ticket
