North Dakota bans texting while driving

North Dakota Governor Jack Dalrymple has signed a new law banning texting while driving. Dalrymple’s signature made North Dakota the 31st state to ban the practice. The new law goes into effect on Aug. 1. Motorists caught texting after that date face a $100 fine. Currently, eight states, the District of Columbia, and the Virgin Islands have outlawed all hand-held cell phone use driving.

“North Dakota has taken an important step to eliminate distracted driving,” said U.S. transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. “Thanks to the bill … North Dakota roads will be safer for everyone.” For more, visit www.nhtsa.gov.
