Recently the city of Cincinnati enacted an ordinance prohibiting in car texting. Here is an article describing the 8-1 vote by cincinnati city council. The Ohio legislature passed a no texting bill in March and the senate of Ohio needs to acton it. Personally these bills need to go farther and ban the use of cell phones while a vehicle is in operation. The logic is the same for both bills. To prevent car accidents from distracted drivers. It just takes a second of innattention fo a serious car accident to happen. Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood, announced that distracted driving-related crashes claimed 5,474 lives and led to 448,000 traffic injuries across the U.S. in 2009. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) research, distraction-related fatalities represented 16 percent of overall traffic fatalities in 2009. Although 2009 showed the lowest fatality and injury rates since 1950, the numbers show that distracted driving remains an epidemic in America. By Cincinnati Car Accident Attorney Anthony Castelli .
