The new law, signed by Gov. Charlie Baker in November, severely restricts the use of mobile phones and other hand-held devices when people are behind the wheel.

State Sen. Will Brownsberger helped craft the new law. He joined Weekend Edition's Sharon Brody to talk about its importance.

This segment aired on February 23, 2020.
