With the road construction season starting up, here's a recently-passed law change that you'll want to be aware of:  It is now illegal to use a cellular (or other wireless) phone while driving through a construction zone in Wisconsin.

The following penalties were also established for those found in violation of this new law:

  • First offense:  $20 - $40
  • Second (and subsequant) offense:  $50 - $100
