Statewide ban on texting while driving effective Sept. 1

AUSTIN – Effective Sept. 1, it will be against the law to text while driving on Texas roads.
On June 6, Gov. Greg Abbott  signed into law a bill that creates a statewide ban on texting while driving. The measure – House Bill 62 -- was authored by state Rep. Tom Craddick, R-Midland. 
Abbott said he wasn’t satisfied with the law as it was written.
“Now that Texas does have a statewide ban on texting and driving, I am calling for legislation that fully pre-empts cities and counties from any regulation of mobile devices in vehicles,” Abbott told the Texas Tribune. “We don’t need a patchwork quilt of regulations that dictate driving practices in Texas.”
The law includes a provision to pre-empt local ordinances that govern a driver’s ability to “read, write, or send an electronic message.”
