Officials in Upper Arlington are considering making texting and driving behind the wheel a primary offense, according to This Week Community Newspapers.
According to the proposal, the law would be harsher than the state law that went into effect Aug. 31.
Ohio's texting and driving law is only a secondary offense, which means police cannot pull drivers over unless they witness another offense.
If Upper Arlington makes texting while driving a primary offense, officers could pull over drivers who are seen texting.
