DWI. DUI. Driving While Texting? Driving While on the Mobile Phone?

The Texas Legislature is looking to put restrictions on the manner that Texas drivers use their mobile phones while driving.  Today’s Houston Chronicle outlines the proposed legislation here.

The Bill affecting mobile phones and teen drivers can be found here. It appears that the offense would be a Class C misdemeanor, and not involve jail time.  A bill proposing to double fines for inattentive drivers is also before the legislature.

Update:  Uh, the legislature may need to add some language to the bill…check out this story from Dayton, Ohio.
