A new article covers a controversial texting ban that will soon be enforced in Upper Arlington, Ohio. The city of Upper Arlington has issued a ban against texting while driving, and police officers in the city will have the ability to pull over a person texting behind the wheel in November.  The controversy stems from the fact that police can also take away the person’s phone and obtain a search warrant. Supporters of the ban say it is a good idea because it will cut down on people texting and driving, but people who oppose the ban say it is too hard to enforce and constitutes a threat to privacy.
