Texting banned while driving in CA

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger today signed into law a measure banning motorists from text messaging and e-mailing while operating a vehicle.

“Building on legislation already helping save lives in California, I am happy to sign this bill because it further encourages safe and responsible driving,” Schwarzenegger said in a statement. “Banning electronic text messaging while driving will keep drivers’ hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road, making our roadways a safer place for all Californians.”

The bill takes effect Jan. 1 2009. It was written by State Sen. Joe Simitian, who also authored the cellphone ban.
