Rally Urges Senators To Ban Texting-While-Driving
Listen to the Story
Lawmakers, police and families met on the lawn of the Ohio Statehouse Thursday to rally in support of a measure to ban texting while driving.
An estimated 75 people showed up to bolster the bill, which would make it a minor misdemeanor to text while driving.
The proposal’s sponsors were joined by representatives of central Ohio police departments, local politicians and the daughter of a man killed when he was hit by a texting driver.
Under the bill, a violation would be punishable by a fine of up to $150. The measure would allow for a motorist to be stopped for texting alone.
If it becomes law, Ohio would join 34 states in banning texting while driving.
