Chagrin Falls will consider ban on cell phone use while driving

Chagrin Falls will consider ban on cell phone use while driving

  • 2015-01-15

The village council rushed the field of agenda items at its Jan. 12 meeting in order to run interference for its members who wanted to watch the game and cheer for The Ohio State University football team in its championship bid.
Postponed for further consideration is proposed new legislation to prohibit the use of hand-held cell phones, or electronic wireless communication devices, while operating a motor vehicle.

Speaking after the meeting, Mayor Thomas Brick said the village safety committee will review the proposed Ordinance 2015-03 in greater detail 7:15 Jan. 26.

"Police feel it is distracting for drivers to use hand-held devices while driving," Brick said. "Bluetooth devices will be permitted. We want to model our legislation after those in Beachwood and Pepper Pike to have a consistent regional set of rules for drivers."

Brick noted that residents asked for increased safety measures after the July 12 accident that took the life of Eli Sachar, 8, of Virginia, who was struck by a vehicle while crossing South Franklin Street.

Also under consideration is a resolution to approve a road project to reconstruct North Street from Orange/Mill Street to Cleveland Street/Falls Road and resurface North Street from Cleveland Street to the Geauga County line.

Councilwoman Janis Evans said the project is expected to cost about $430,000. She said it will go out for bid for a more accurate cost.

Under committee reports for the village arts commission, Evans reported that the Chagrin Valley Little Theatre received a $428,000 state grant.

Councilwoman Janna Lutz reported that tree trimming in Riverside Park would begin toward the end of the month.(from cleveland.com)
