Senate gives final approval to ban texting while driving

The State Senate gave final approval Tuesday to legislation to ban drivers from text messaging or sending e-mails with their cell phones. If Governor Bev Perdue signs into law, someone caught violating the law could face a $100 fine plus court costs. Drivers that are younger than 18 are already barred from the practice. They are not allowed to talk on their cell phones, either. The new law would go into effect December 1st.
