Toledo - No Texting and Driving
My friend is a Sargent with the Cleveland Heights Police Force and was telling me that they just passed a ban on texting while driving. I looked further into it and noticed Toledo has the same ban that was passed last year and put into effect Jan 1, 2010. I must have forgotten about it. Typically I do not text while driving. Only at stop lights. I'm not saying that's good but I am making an effort.
Read more info here on what cities have the ban in effect.
1st offense in Toledo is a $150 fine.
I am wondering why this has not been passed at the state level? How are people supposed to know and remember what cities they can and cannot text in? I know, I know, we should not be doing it at all, but to properly enforce it, I would think we need the entire state on board.
Your thoughts on this?
