Texas officers prepare to enforce texting ban

Jun 20, 2017

The Houston Chronicle reports law enforcement are preparing to enforce a law that will go into effect on September 1, which will "effectively ban drivers from texting while a vehicle is in motion but allow them to read or text messages if the vehicle is stopped at, for instance, a stop light.”

Harris County Sheriff’s office “will prepare for the rollout of the bill by putting deputies through training,” according to spokesman Jason Spencer. The legislation may effectively make things “clearer for motorists, who previously could be under different laws regarding texting depending on where they were, he said.”
