U Drive. U Text. U Pay. National Texting Enforcement Campaign
From April 10 to April 15, 2015, law enforcement personnel nationwide will be using a combination of traditional and innovative strategies to crack down on motorists who text and drive. The enforcement blitz is supported by a national advertising campaign running April 6 to April 15, 2015, which is designed to raise awareness about the enforcement effort and remind people about the deadly consequences of texting and driving.
As of May 2015, 46 states, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands ban text messaging for all drivers. All but 5 have primary enforcement. Of the 4 states without an all driver texting ban, 2 prohibit text messaging by novice drivers, 1 restricts school bus drivers from texting.
