Oregon lawmakers approve new rules limiting cellphone use while driving | KGW.com

No longer can you use the excuse you're using your device for work, unless you're a police officer, firefighter, EMT, utility worker or anyone making emergency calls to 911. The bill says two-way radios can only be used by school bus operators during work, utility or forest products workers.


So I can't use my mobile 2m radio any more?

WTF.

Somewhere between FOE, PDX, RNO or YVR
Read the text of the actual bill.

"(4) It is an affirmative defense to a prosecution of a person under this section that the person:
(e) Was 18 years of age or older, held a valid amateur radio operator license issued or any other license issued by the Federal Communications Commission and was operating an amateur radio;"
