Councilmember Jordan Chilson introduced the ordinance: “We have parents that show up and form pick up lines in their cars, to pick up and drop off their students, and they are not always looking up from their cellphones. The schools have really been battling to address this.” If passed this would not however apply to hands free device usage or parked vehicles not in operation. A vote on the ordinance was postponed at the last city council meeting to allow for public testimony. Chilson: “It’s not something that we’re going to go out and write tickets left and right for, it’s more making sure people understand ‘hey, this is not okay, keep your hands above the wheel’.” Some school have placed signs warning against using your cellphone or other handheld device while driving. If passed the ordinance would establish the use of a handheld screen device while drivingin these designated areas to now be a minor offense under Soldotna Municipal Code.
