Lawmaker: N.D. needs texting law

Published 01/28/2011, The Jamestown Sun

BISMARCK — Texting while driving is a serious danger, and North Dakota needs a uniform law that applies statewide, a Bismarck lawmaker said Thursday. House Bill 1195 would ban drivers from using wireless communication devices to compose, read or send electronic messages. This includes checking e-mail, texting, instant messaging and using the Internet. The bill has exceptions for talking on the phone or operating a global positioning system device. The proposed law would not apply in emergency situations.
