 Law makers are now getting involved in one of the newest causes of driving crashes: texting while driving. This year many states are working to pass new or amend laws for those who take part in this dangerous act. USA Today just reported that several states are looking to pass laws that will ban texting while driving, including Kentucky. You can read that article at http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2010-01-24-texting_N.htmThe Courier Journal also reported that, “Lawmakers in both chambers are pushing bills to ban texting and driving, joining the ranks of more than 20 states with similar laws, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association.” http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20100103/NEWS0101/1030309/2010-Kentucky-Legislative-Preview-%7C-Transportation–Driving-while-texting-may-mean-big-fines
