Texting-while-Driving Ban Has Begun

We have written in the past about HB 99, the statewide texting-while-driving ban.  The ban took effect last Friday, August 31st, and there will be a six-month window during which officers will issue only warnings.  Ohio is the 39th state to enact such a ban, which includes a prohibition of texting while stopped at a red light.  The Columbus ban also remains in effect.
