Since the beginning of July people across the Ohio valley have had to adjust the way they answer a phone call or text while driving.
But if by chance you forget the new hands free law, some message boards have been posted around the city by the Wheeling Police to remind you to hang up and drive and stay alive.
These message boards are used to communicate to the public anything from speed enforcement to no parking but most recently have been scrolling reminders to the Ohio Valley to put their phones down while driving.
Wheeling Police believe these signs are making difference.
Deputy Chief Marty Kimball tells 7 News he believes the signs are a valuable tool in getting the message to the public. Kimball says everything they do from print, radio, and television that gets the message to the public to pay attention no matter what they're doing is a valuable tool.
Kimball compares the new hands free law to seat belt laws coming about in the 1960's.
A law that at first not popular but now is second nature to people when they get into their cars.
He hopes that over time the hands fee law will become prominent in drivers minds
