Ohio Texting Ban Takes Effect

The texting ban for Ohio drivers took effect Aug. 31, the Associated Press reported.

For the next half year police will only issue warnings, texting while driving will be a secondary offense for drivers 18 and older, meaning an officer has to stop a driver for another offense first.

For drivers under 18, the ban is a primary offense and they are not allowed to text, use cell phones or other hand-held devices.

The ban does allow all drivers to text and use their cell phones in cases of an emergency.
