Wisconsin No-Texting-While-Driving Law Goes into Effect Dec. 1
Link to November 20 Appleton Post-Crescent article.
Excerpt: During his years as a driver's education instructor, David Gawinski has stressed to teens and young adults the dangers of texting while driving.
"There has been study after study that when you are texting, there is a 23 times better chance of having an accident then when you aren't texting," said Gawinski, who has owned the Tri County Driving School of Appleton for 29 years.
Effective Dec. 1, the stakes rise considerably for those who seem to text anywhere at any time. They will face hefty fines under a state law banning texting while driving.
