Ala. bill to ban text messaging while driving get first test

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Legislation to ban text messaging while
driving is headed for its first test in a committee of the Alabama
House.

The House Public Safety Committee is scheduled to consider the
bill today.

The bill by Republican Rep. Jim McClendon of Springville would
levy a $25 fine for the first violation.

McClendon says he wants drivers to keep their eyes on the road
instead of their cell phones.
