Texting While Driving Becomes a Secondary Offense in Ohio on Friday

Posted on

A new Ohio law is set to ban texting while driving. Starting at the end of August, this activity will be a secondary traffic offense in Ohio, meaning that a citation for texting can only be issued if the driver is pulled over for some other violation. Younger drivers are now prohibited from using any electronic device while driving.  That includes talking on cell phones. There will be a six month grace period after the law takes effect where officers will issue warnings and give information to drivers instead of citations.
