You can still control your music through your vehicle’s radio system (if you have the technology to do it). And, of course, you can use voice activation to tell Siri (or Alexa or whoever) to play your favorite commuting tunes.
A couple of caveats:
*The new law specifically prohibits drivers from watching videos, so music streaming apps that have video are not allowed.
*Headsets and earpieces can only be worn for communication purposes – not for listening to music.
You can find a more detailed look at what's legal and what's not under the new law here.
As we reported Monday, police officers will have discretion to issue warnings instead of tickets. But there's no grace period for the new law, so tickets can be issued beginning July 1.
So keep your hands on the wheel, but don't stop the music.
