Anti-Texting And Driving Bill Introduced
Posted: 14 January, 2013
LINCOLN (AP) – A Nebraska lawmaker has introduced a bill that would give police the authority to pull over motorists who are texting while driving.
The bill introduced Friday by Scottsbluff Sen. John Harms would make texting while driving a primary offense. Current Nebraska law only allows police to cite drivers who have been stopped for another traffic offense. Another measure introduced on Friday would require schools to enact tobacco-free policies, and still another bill would lower the state’s voter registration age from 18 to 16. The voting age would stay at 18.
