Indianapolis, IN - It is now illegal to hold your phone in your hand while driving on Indiana roads.  

Sgt. John Perrine with Indiana State Police says it's not a total ban on using your phone while driving -- you just can't hold it.  You can use your phone through Bluetooth devices or otherhands-free operations. 

Perrine says it's all about limiting crashes caused by distracted driving.  Other states with similar laws have reported a decrease of 20% in distracted driving accidents.

Drivers violating the new law could be fined a maximum of $500.
