Ohio (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Ohio has become the 39th state to prohibit texting while driving.
Governor John Kasich signed a ban Friday on writing, reading and sending texts from behind the wheel.
It goes into effect in 90 days.
The measure includes a stricter crackdown on teen drivers' use of electronic devices. Minors would be banned from using cell phones, Ipads or other electronics while driving.
Texting would be a secondary offense for adult drivers. They could be ticketed for typing messages only if they were first pulled over for another offense, such as running a red light.
