State Politicians Debating Texting & Driving Bills
Posted on behalf of Harbin & Burnett on Apr 21, 2014 in Auto Accidents
South Carolina could soon become the 44th state banning texting and driving.
The state House and Senate passed separate bills last week that supporters believe may replace the bans across cities and towns in South Carolina. Each bill must pass the other chamber for consideration. The bill could include penalty points on drivers licenses, however, fines may be as low as $25 for violators which some supporters believe may not be enough.
Greenville county currently prohibits any cellphone use while driving whereas Clemson only prohibits texting. In Oconee County, drivers can only use their cellphones if they are stopped at a red light. Should one of the bills pass it could provide a coherent statewide policy.
