HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state is making big money off of Oahu drivers who violate the cell phone ban. The year-old law has led to more than half a million dollars in fines and fees.
State court records show more than 7,600 citations have been issued.
First-time offenders are fined $97.
Since Oahu's cell phone ban started last July, similar laws have passed on Maui, Kauai and the Big Island.
