TUCSON - Tomorrow, the Tucson City Council will hold a public meeting to discuss an ordinance that would ban texting while driving in Tucson.
The proposed ordinance, based on provisions already enacted in Phoenix, would prohibit a person from operating a motor vehicle on a street while "using a personal digital assistant to send or receive a written message while the motor vehicle is in motion."
Anyone caught texting while driving would face a fine of at least $100, and $250 if they were involved in an accident while texting.
News 4 Tucson will have more on this proposed city ordinance on Channel 4 this evening.
