SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Salt Lake County employees may soon be prohibited from talking on their cell phones while driving.
Mayor Peter Corroon is proposing a policy that would prohibit county employees from operating a vehicle while using a cell phone while on county time.
Corroon says it's a liability issue. He said if employees get a call they should pull over to the side of the road.
However, some county officials are hesitant. Some County Council members say the policy could be overreaching and difficult to enforce.
Sandy and American Fork have passed inattentive driving ordinances that making talking on a cell phone, putting on makeup or eating a secondary moving violation.
