Idaho Texting Ban Starts July1st

(KLIX)- Come July first a new state law will go into effect banning texting while driving. The state legislature passed the measure in its last session. The new law only bans texting or entering data into a mobile device, it doesn’t prohibit talking on your phone. Lieutenant Kevin Haight with Idaho State Police says that includes entering information via facebook, twitter and even using a portable GPS device. The new law does allow people to text in a vehicle if they are not moving. For example if a motorist comes up on a stop sign or stop light they can send or look at a text. Lt. Haigth says the way the code reads, people have to be moving in order to be cited. The state texting ban is only an infraction, it wont go on anyone’s record and it will cost $81.50. And again it goes into effect on July first.
