Statewide Texting Ban, Teen Rules Sent To Governor Kasich
Ohio teens could not use cellphones or other electronic devices while driving under a bill sent Tuesday to the governor.
The House voted 82-12 to pass the bill. The Senate previously approved it, and Gov. John Kasich is expected to sign it.
All drivers would be banned from texting, though young drivers could more easily be pulled over for it.
The bill would make texting a secondary offense for adults. That means drivers could be ticketed for typing messages only if they were first pulled over for another offense, such as running a red light.
According to the Governors Highway Safety Association, the measure would be among the nation’s broadest in terms of teen distracted driving restrictions. The organization says texting while driving is already prohibited in 38 states.
