Wisconsin Bans Text Messaging While Driving

Comments (0)

Wisconsin’s new ban on text messaging while driving specifically prohibits the writing and transmitting of messages while the vehicle is in motion. It does not outlaw the reading of text messages or use of the Internet. Police say they’ll fall back on the inattentive driving law if other activities on handheld electronic devices lead to unsafe behaviors.

State officials say 18 percent of Wisconsin’s vehicle crashes in 2009 were caused by distracted drivers.
