Bexley Council Votes to Ban Texting While Driving

In an anticipated move, the Bexley City Council voted yesterday to ban texting while driving, riding a motorcycle, or cycling in the city limits. The fine is $150.

Apparently the police in Bexley are under the impression that it will be difficult to enforce, but according to this article in the Columbus Dispatch, a Cleveland police lieutenant is saying that's just not the case - it's easy to tell who's texting while driving by looking at them.

This is a great step forward for Central Ohio - law that actually requires people to be more responsible when they drive is a wonderful way to get people to begin to realize that their careless actions can affect other people.

People, not speed.
