When driving, how often do you pull your phone to "just quickly check something"? If the answer is anything other than "I don’t", you need to learn about Michigan’s new hands-free cell phone law as it could now get you fined up to $500.

As the music video highlights, the driving law does have a loophole that allows you to use your phone as long as it is on a mount, so you can still have GPS or other information on hand while driving.

With the Michigan hands-free driving law coming into effect on June 30th, 2023, as a driver, you may be unaware of the change, or know the law’s specific details regarding mobile phone use while driving. However, as failure to understand what is and is not allowed can lead to fines, community service, and points being added to your license, it’s important that you know these details.

That’s why Jason Waechter, THE Motorcycle Lawyer, joined forces with rapper Comic to create an educational and entertaining rap video that raises awareness of the new law.

The new rap video’s main hook explains, "Right before I leave the house, I already know the route. If I don’t I plan it out, put my phone up in a mount". This catchy line outlines how you can navigate a loophole in the law which states drivers cannot be "holding" their phone while operating their vehicle.

While the video has a humorous tone, the message it delivers is an important one for both drivers to avoid running foul of the law, but also the importance of reducing distractions while driving. As a preeminent attorney for motorcycle injury and wrongful death cases, Jason Waechter has unparalleled experience in the field and the damage distracted drivers can cause.

When speaking of the new law, Jason said, “This law is not perfect. Its goal is to cut down on distracted driving, which is especially dangerous to the motorcycle community. Distracted driving leads to many serious accidents and by going hands-free, the hope is to reduce them significantly.”

If you want to learn more about Michigan’s hands-free cell phone law, you can watch "Put It In The Mount" alongside a breakdown of the new legal requirements on THE Motorcycle Lawyers’ website. Jason Waechter and Comic can also be made available for interviews by contacting Waechter’s office.

When driving, always remember that when in doubt, "Put it in the Mount"!
