[ARCHIVED] New City Ordinance Addresses Texting While Driving


The Board of City Commissioners recently adopted Ordinance 2015-09 which addresses texting while driving a motor vehicle.

This ordinance follows the new Oklahoma State Law that went into effect on November 1. Under the new state law, it is illegal to read or manually compose or send a text message while driving a moving vehicle. The ban also includes instant messages, email, photos or video.

The new city ordinance and state law both set the fine for violating the law at $100.00
