GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Glendale has become the latest city in Arizona to ban the use of handheld cellphones while driving.

The Glendale City Council voted unanimously Tuesday to enact the ban, which goes into effect on Feb. 7.

Glendale police say there will be an education and warning period of about six months before officers begin enforcement of the ban.

The fine for the first offense is $250.
