Bills Would Ban Texting While Driving
Up for debate today in the Senate is a bill that would crack down on text messaging while driving. Wisconsin Senate Bill 103 would ban text messaging for drivers under the age of 18. [see Senate substitute amendment 1 for the under 18 language]
According to the bill, violators would be charged a fine between $100 and $400 for a first offense, and $200 to $800 for further offenses.
