FRANKFORT - Gov. Steve Beshear has signed House Bill 415 into law - banning texting for all drivers and cell phone use for drivers under 18.
In December 2009, Gov. Beshear launched his Eyes on the Road effort - an executive order prohibiting text messaging by state employees who are driving government-owned vehicles.
Kentucky recorded more than 57,000 crashes last year due to driver distraction, inattention and cell phone use. Gov. Beshear believes the new law ties in perfectly with the nationwide effort to reduce distracted driving crashes.
