Tucson texting ban now on the books

TUCSON — Text message while driving within the Tucson city limits is now against the law. The new ordinance began Sunday.

If a Tucson police officer catches you texting while driving the fine is $100. The fine increases to $250 if the driver is involved in a crash while they are texting behind the wheel.

You can text as long as the car is not moving. City officials say the goal is to cut down on distracted driving deaths.
