SHAKER HEIGHTS, Ohio – Another Northeast Ohio city has banned cell phone use while driving.
Shaker Heights Council passed an ordinance this week that bans drivers from using cell phones. More stringent than Ohio state law, this ban includes all use of smartphones, laptops, PDAs and other wireless devices — not just texting.
Using a phone while driving will be a primary offense in Shaker Heights, meaning that a police officer can pull drivers over just for using their phones. A first-degree misdemeanor, it will carry a potential maximum penalty of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.

2. St. Louis Blues, 1929 RKO/Sack Amusements FREE Screening (one of several shorts), Feb. 26th, 7:30pm, Rock Hall - This sixteen-minute short film shot in Astoria, Queens, New York City, is blues singer Bessie Smith’s only screen role. In it, she plays a long-suffering wife of an uncaring gambler. Co-produced by W.C. Handy, author of the title song, the film also features Isabelle Washington (sister of actress Fredi Washington) who plays the “other woman.” Pianist James P. Johnson and the Hall Johnson Choir accompanied Smith and added to the overwhelming pathos of her singing, making this dramatized interpretation of the blues a true film classic.2 of 6
