Texas, Arizona Debate Bans on Texting While Driving
Texas is the latest state to consider enacting a ban on texting while driving. Senators in Arizona are also discussing such a ban. Currently, 30 states have at least partial texting bans, including Georgia, where the law went into effect in July of 2010.
The logic behind statewide texting bans aims to prevent distracted drivers from causing serious accidents. In fact, many supporters of the Texas ban have approached committee members to share stories of loved ones who were tragically injured or killed in car crashes resulting from distracted drivers.
