New legislation in Wisconsin has made them the 25th state to ban texting while driving. The law geos into effect December 1 and will be considered a primary offense.

A primary offense means that a police officer can pull over someone if they are seen texting while driving and no other driving offense needs to be committed. According to the Department of Transportation, nearly 6,000 deaths were in crashes that were linked to cell phone distraction, texting being a large one. Many think that texting and driving is just as dangerous as driving while intoxicated.
