A Texting Ban in Ohio?
Texting while driving can distract drivers. Â Ohio is considering a statewide texting ban -Â The Ohio House has already approved a measure, but the State Senate isnâ€™t expected to take up the issue until fall.
34 states have already banned texting while driving.
Today on All Sides weâ€™ll talk about whether bans work in decreasing accidents on the road. Â Some studies have been conducted, but are they conclusive? Should other activities be banned while driving like using a cellphone, eating and drinking, or programming a GPS system. Â Â Arenâ€™t they just as distractive?
