City Bans Text Messaging While Driving

Some of our most popular posts are posts about text messaging while driving.  Apparently, this is a bigger concern to people than we thought.

Now, at least some people are doing something about it.  Phoenix has recently banned text messaging while driving.  From the article:

Phoenix is the first city in Arizona and one of the first in the nation to specifically ban texting while driving.

Phoenix also will lobby Arizona lawmakers to pass a statewide ban next year. Through Oct. 20, drivers pulled over for texting will receive a warning. After that, they can be fined $100, or $250 if an accident is involved.

The ban was proposed after a traffic crash last month in Glendale in which a car driven by an 18-year-old woman drifted across the center line while she was texting. She ran into a car driven by another woman. Both women died.

Maybe if other cities and states follow suit, we can prevent a few people from becoming personal injury victims.
