Arizona could be headed for a texting ban after new rule proposed

Arizona is one of the few remaining states in the U.S. that does not have some sort of ban on texting or cellphone use while driving a car. That may change if a state representative from Tucson has her way, as she proposed a state-wide ban on sending or composing a text while driving. According to the state representative, the proposed law would not apply to drivers who use hands-free technology to send or compose a text.

New distracted driving movement in 2014 for state of Arizona

Arizona is one of the few states that has never passed a law that bans drivers from texting while driving. We wrote about the tragic consequences of drivers who are distracted by their phones in a recent post about a fatal truck accident. The act is dangerous, plain and simple -- and even if a law is not in effect to make it clear, people should still use common sense to avoid texting while driving. You are inherently looking away from the road, often for many seconds at a time.
