Coconino supervisors pullback on cell phone law

FLAGSTAFF – Coconino County is letting the state take the lead in banning text messaging while driving.

The Coconino County Board of Supervisors Feb. 23 decided not to enact a sweeping proposal from an advisory board aimed at blocking text messaging, speaking on a cell phone, or using a two-way radio while driving.

The county’s Board of Health voted last May to prohibit most electronic communication while driving, aside from emergencies and emergency workers.

It was up to the Board of Supervisors to decide whether to enact some of all of that measure.

Instead, the supervisors moved to support state legislation that prohibits text messaging while driving.
