Texting-driving laws hard to enforce
When Gov. John Kasich signed House Bill 99 into law on June 1, 2012, officially banning drivers from texting while driving, many people throughout Ohio rejoiced. More than two years later, it seems those cries of celebration were premature. Laws against texting while driving are proving to be difficult for police to enforce, and records show they are not improving public safety or discouraging the habit in the way that lawmakers initially hoped.
