Recently, Wisconsin has passed legislation making them the 25th state to ban texting while driving. The new law will come into effect on December 1 and drivers should work to stop this habit or they will be fined.
A reason that this law was passed is due to statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation that state that cell phone distraction was linked to crashes where nearly 6,000 deaths were caused. Many think that texting and driving is just as dangerous as getting behind the wheel if you are intoxicated.
The new law is seen as a primary offense and a police officer can pull a driver over if he or she is seen texting and driving and no other offense has been committed.
