Lawmakers Consider Distracted Driving Bills

Lawmakers in Carson City discussed a pair of bills to combat distracted driving yesterday.  One measure would ban drivers from texting and cell phone use while behind the wheel.  But the Senate Transportation Chairwoman delayed a vote on her bill while she talks to fellow lawmakers about it.  Meanwhile, an Assembly panel took no action on another measure, which would also ban texting and handheld cell phone use while driving.  Police officers questioned the bill’s fine of two-thousand dollars and the loss of a driver’s license for a third offense.
