Alaskans are already forbidden from texting while driving, and on Wednesday, Gov. Bill Walker signed legislation that could keep them from driving and talking on the phone, too.

In a ceremony at Anchorage’s Bowman Elementary School, the governor approved House Bill 333 by Rep. Chris Birch, R-Anchorage.

The bill allows boroughs and cities to prohibit drivers from using their cellphones in school zones. The ban doesn’t become effective unless a borough passes an ordinance implementing the ban.
