Kilgore Vote Agaist Banning ‘Texing While Driving’

Last week Governor, Rick Perry vetoed a “Texting While Driving” ban. But East Texan communities are taking action on this very danger practice. Months ago Kilgore City Council had been discussing passing their own ban but were waiting to see what measures the state took. More after the jump.

Kilgore’s city council voted on the texting ordinance last night with a split 2 – 2 vote.  The Mayor of Kilgore cast his negative vote therefore defeating the proposed ban.

Main objections were:  How easy would this class C misdemeanor be to enforce — and should this ban be limited to texting only should all cell phone use be banned. This controversial topic was voted down therefore leaving people in Kilgore only their own common sense holding them back from texting while driving.
