Texting Ban on Kentucky Motorists passed by House

Comments (0)
How many times have you and your family been in danger while driving the Kentucky roadways because of other drivers becoming distracted by their cell phones? As you know, this has become a prevalent problem, especially with drivers looking down to read and send text messages.

If you haven’t heard yet, Kentucky lawmakers recently passed a measure by an 80-16 vote that would ban Kentucky drivers from texting while driving and to bar teenagers under the age of 18 from talking on a cell phone while driving.

If you don’t think that this measure is necessary, then you are not alone.  The 16 “no” votes were cast by House Republicans. However, Rep. Keith Hall, D-Phelps, was originally against the ban until his wife became involved in a recent Kentucky car accident when she looked down to answer her phone. He had a change of heart.

As you know, car accidents can lead to serious and life-altering injuries. These injures can leave victims considering tough questions, such as who is going to pay for medical expenses or who will care for their family if they become incapacitated. 

If you or someone you know has been injured in a Kentucky auto accident, you should contact an experienced Northern Kentucky car accident attorney at the Law Office of Schachter, Hendy & Johnson at (859) 578-4444 or (888) 606-5297.
