MIDLAND - Two state lawmakers, one from right here in the Tall City, are pushing a new ban on texting while driving.
House Bill 63, written by Rep. Tom Craddick, calls for a statewide ban on texting and driving.
Right now, there are statewide prohibitions when it comes to texting behind the wheel, but not a ban.
For more than a year, Midland City Councilman Scott Dufford, made it his mission to ban texting and driving in the city limits, but he was unsuccessful.
"That to me is the most irritating thing, not just that it's dangerous, but that people aren't paying attention," Dufford said.
