Texting and driving has become a major issue on today’s roadways. While Ohio has made a texting ban, drivers are still guilty of using their phone when behind the wheel.
Drivers often check texts, read emails, or look at their Facebook or Twitter feeds. This is reckless behavior and has the potential to cause serious injuries or fatalities to others on the roadway.
