Texas' texting and driving ban that starts Friday September 1st

(DALLAS NEWS) Authorities across Texas will soon be scouring the roads for people who are texting behind the wheel. A statewide ban takes effect Sept 1 2017.

A law signed by Gov. Greg Abbott last month will replace the patchwork of local restrictions that some municipalities adopted. Supporters of the bill hope it will make the roads safer; 1 in 5 crashes involves driver distraction, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
