OHIO TEXTING AND DRIVING RECORDS RELEASED

A new tex­ting while dri­ving law took effect in Ohio about a year ago, but so far, it hasn’t had a very big impact across the Buck­eye state.

Traf­fic cita­tion sta­tis­tics show there hasn’t been a big upswing in tick­ets for Ohio dri­vers who insist on tex­ting while dri­ving.

The Ohio State High­way Patrol issued warn­ings for the first six months the law was in effect. A spokesman for the high­way patrol said it doesn’t have a total num­ber of cita­tions writ­ten since the grace period ended about six months ago because the data set would be so small.
