Texting and Driving

By: Jake Marissa Kaylie Joe Cade

23% of crashes are due to texting and driving. That is 1.3 million people. I believe that Oklahoma Congress should pass a law against texting while driving.

Who banned it

While laws and provisions vary within states, currently, seven states ban hand-held cell-phone use while driving, and text-messaging is banned for all drivers in 18 states and the District of Columbia. Nine states, including Texas, prohibit text-messaging by novice drivers. Texas also prohibits school bus drivers from texting while driving.
