Student drivers sign no texting while driving pledge

CINCINNATI - Students learning to drive at the AAA Driving School in Hyde Park are signing a pledge to keep the roads a little safer.

After Gov. John Kasich signed the new texting ban into law, the class will sign a pledge not to text and drive.

The students will also wear wristbands to raise awareness of the dangers of texting and driving, a message that's important to the driving school's curriculum.

Ohio is the 39th state to prohibit texting while driving, according to the Governors Highway Safety Association. The Ohio law includes a stricter crackdown on teen drivers' use of electronic devices, making the measure among the broadest in the country focused on distracted teen drivers.
