WISCONSIN (CBS 58) -- It's now against the law in Wisconsin to pull out your phone camera to take pictures or videos of a car crash while driving.
"People like to see what's going on. They're either going too slow or they're not paying attention while they're going by there."
Officials say that can cause more crashes and other dangerous issues.
Wisconsin Assemblyman Jesse James co-wrote the new bill, which penalizes drivers who use their cellphones on the road within 500 feet of a crash site.
"These accidents, these crashes can be avoided as long as people just pay attention to the roadway in front of them," said Rep. James.
Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed the bill into law in December, but law enforcement officials say they haven't seen much change.
