jenrgw San Antonio Becomes Third Large City in Texas to Ban Texting

The grace period is over in San Antonio.  Now, any motorist caught texting while driving can be fined according to an ordinance passed by the City Council in October 2010.

What You Need to Know

There are a few things that motorists need to understand about the new ban.

  • Fines can be up to $200;
  • The ban includes everything that you can do on a cell phone other than making a call; and
  • The ban extends to motorists who are stopped in traffic or at red lights.

El Paso and Austin already have texting bans in place.  Will more Texas municipalities follow suit or will a state wide ban be next?
