Oklahoma Legislature needs to finally ban texting while driving

by The Oklahoman Editorial Board Published: January 24, 2013

McDaniel's House Bill 1503 would exempt texts to emergency response operators, medical providers, firefighters and law enforcement. He's recommending a $500 fine. There's plenty of support for this idea, from organizations such as AAA Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Safety Council, the state Department of Public Safety and the Oklahoma Highway Safety Council.

The Legislature needs to get on board and make it illegal to text and drive.
