“People’s understanding of the bill is still evolving,” Wickert said. “Even with a week to go.”

Wickert also went on a ride along with officials, which is detailed at 14:54.

“We drove around for less than an hour and saw a couple of dozen people who were either violating the current law clearly or otherwise having the phone in their hand, which will become illegal come July 1.”
