UPDATE: Governor to Signs 'Kelsey's Law'

Posted: Updated:

The governor signed legislation today making it illegal for new drivers to use a cell phone behind the wheel.

'Kelsey's Law' is named after Sault Ste. Marie teen, Kelsey Raffaele, who died in a crash while talking on her phone in 2010.

Under the new law, anyone caught on a cell phone while driving on a level one, or level two probationary license would get a ticket.

We will have a crew down there for the signing later this afternoon and we will bring you continuing coverage tonight on 9&10 News at 5:00 and 6:00.
