Texting Ban Moves Ahead

View Comments

(Carson City, NV)  —  An Assembly panel has approved a bill to ban drivers from texting or chatting on cell phones.  The measure would make it a fine to use a mobile phone while behind a wheel, except for hands-free devices.  The first offense would result in a 50-dollar penalty, with a 250-dollar fine for the third offense. 

A similar measure was approved by a Senate committee earlier this month.  Lawmakers will have to work out differences before sending a final bill to Governor Brian Sandoval for his signature.
