House Could Debate Hands-Free Driving Bill Today

(Columbia, SC)  --  Many drivers may soon have to change their habits behind the wheel.  

House lawmakers could begin discussing, as soon as today, a bill that would drastically increase fines for texting and talking on the phone while driving.  

If the bill becomes law, fines for first-time offenders would go from 25 dollars to 100 dollars, and each successive fine would cost 300 dollars.  

WIS reports the SCHP estimates there have been almost a thousand crashes caused by distracted driving this year, and 13 of them were deadly.
