Ariz. official doesn’t have stance on texting ban

Arizona's highway safety director says he's not ready to say whether the state should ban texting while driving. Meeting in Georgia, the Governors Highway Safety Association reversed itself and came out for a texting ban. The group cited a Virginia Tech Transportation Institute study that found drivers who are texting increase the risk of a crash or near-crash by 23 times.
