Nebraska lawmakers consider tougher law for those caught texting while driving
This spring, the Nebraska Roadway Safety Act has been proposed to state lawmakers by Sen. John Harms of Scottsbluff. A key point of the bill would change the way Nebraska enforces its law for those caught driving an automobile while text messaging. Currently, Nebraska is among 41 U.S. states that ban texting while driving, but it’s among only four states that make it a secondary offense. instead of a primary offense.
As Ted Lampkin reports for NewsNetNebraska, the new proposal would make texting while driving a primary traffic offense.
