City Gives Legislature One More Chance To Enact Texting-While-Driving Ban

Coeur d'Alene Council members say they will give the Legislature one more chance to pass a law banning text messaging while driving, before the City drafts its own.

The City had discussed enacting its own rule a while back but set it aside since the topic as at the state level at the time. When the Legislature failed to follow through, discussions started again, only to be put aside once more when it went back to the legislature. Council members say this is the last time though.

Here's the story from the Coeur d'Alene Press.
