Texting Ban Gains Approval In Oklahoma Senate
03/17/2011
 

  Texting while driving would be illegal in
Oklahoma under a bill approved in the state Senate.
     The Senate voted 32-9 on Wednesday for the proposal by Sen.
Jerry Ellis, D-Valliant, over the objections of some senators who
say enforcement of the ban would pose a problem for police.
     Ellis cited research that shows motorists who send text messages
while driving are much more likely to be in an accident.
     Under his plan, first-time offenders could face a fine of up to
$175, while a second violation could lead to fines of up to $500.
Fines could be doubled if texting motorists are involved in a
collision.
     The bill, which now heads to the House, includes exemptions for
emergency, medical and law enforcement personnel.
