New texting while driving ban full of loopholes
A new Texas law now in effect that bans texting while driving is full of loopholes, Channel 2 Investigates has learned. The law took effect Sept. 1, during the height of Harvey. Jeff Seely, a personal injury attorney in Houston who generally supports the new law, said that the legislation, a product of compromise, offers drivers a range of possible defenses and mandates that officers must not only witness offenders using their phones, but identify that the activity is specifically texting.
