(LANSING, Mich.) -- A new law has been signed to help keep young drivers off of cellphones while behind the wheel in Michigan.

Kelsey's Law was signed by Governor Rick Snyder on Tuesday, and bans cellphone use for anyone driving on a level 1 or level 2 graduated driver's license in the state.

The law, which takes effect in late March, is named after 17-year-old Kelsey Raffaele, who was killed in a cellphone-related vehicular crash in 2010.
