New Laws Regulate Kegs, Cell Phone Use

WILMINGTON -- If you're planning on grabbing a keg for that next party, you'll have to get a permit.

This new law will help ALE agents determine who is responsible when underage drinking occurs at a party with a keg. The person who purchased the keg can receive a ticket or go to jail for providing alcohol to minors.

Another rule bans cell phone use while driving for teenagers 18 and younger.  If a young driver is caught talking on the phone while driving, they can get a ticket. The only exceptions are if the driver is talking to a parent, a spouse or calling 911. 

Another new law requires backseat passengers to wear a seatbelt. Passengers caught unbuckled can get a $10 ticket.
