AAA: 30 states have now banned texting while driving, time for Idaho to join

AAA says 30 states have now banned texting while driving, with the recent addition of Delaware, and the auto association says it's Idaho's turn to act. "Thirty states have shown there is legislative and public momentum to address texting in the larger framework of distracted driving. Twenty-four of these laws have been enacted in just the past two years," said Jim Carlson, director of public and government affairs for AAA Idaho. "A year ago, AAA pledged its support to enact texting bans in all 50 states by the year 2013. AAA believes it's Idaho's turn to act on this issue." You can read the AAA's full statement here.
