South Carolina Legislature Considers New Texting While Driving Laws

, ,

Three bills under review in the South Carolina legislature hope to extend the scope of previous municipal ordinances prohibiting texting while driving. Two of the bills will ban texting while driving entirely and the third will ban all cell phone use in a school zone. “The school zone [bill] was because I had a law enforcement officer come to me and tell me that he saw a child almost killed by a parent who was in a school zone and was not paying attention because they were on the phone,” said the sponsoring senator.
