Wisconsin governor likely to sign texting while driving ban

Posted under Uncategorized

A bill banning texting while driving in Wisconsin will likely become a law soon. The bill was passed in the Assembly in January, and an amended version was passed in the Senate April 15. 

The bill will likely be signed by Governor Jim Doyle in the next week. The law would impose a fine of $20 to $400 for any driver caught texting while driving. The ban is meant to crack down on distracted driving caused by cell phone use.
