Wisconsin AAA is urging the Legislature to ban texting while driving. Pam Moen of the auto club says it’s very dangerous. “It defies logic to think that you can drive safely while typing and sending and recieving text messages,” Moen says.
The state Senate is scheduled to act on the issue tomorrow. The auto club is urging state legislators to pass a ban. In fact, the national AAA office is hoping to get a texting ban on the books in EVERY state by 2013. A survey by the group found nearly 20 percent of U.S. drivers admitted to either receiving or sending a text message.
