An Ohio representative has introduced a bill to ban texting while driving statewide.

Ohio Rep. Rex Damschroder, R-Fremont, and Nancy Garland, D-Gahanna, introduced House Bill 99 this week. Damschroder plans to testify at a hearing on the bill in two weeks.

The bill would make the practice of texting while driving a primary offense, meaning drivers can be pulled over if police see the driver texting while driving. Individuals caught doing this would be subject to a misdemeanor charge and a $150 fine.

"I am proud to take the first step today to ban the dangerous practice of texting while driving in Ohio," Damschroder stated. "All you have to do is pick up the newspaper and you can read about incidents happening where motorists are killed due to other motorists engaging in this reckless activity. This bill will save lives."
