COLUMBIA, S.C. —
South Carolina lawmakers are pushing a bill through Columbia to make texting and driving illegal under the state's distracted driving law. It is one of only 10 states without a texting and driving law. State House Rep. Mandy Powers Norrell co-sponsored the bill. She said it's important to get it on the books. "Untold lives could be lost in the meantime, because we didn't get that bill to the floor to be voted on and passed into law this year," Norrell said. The last texting and driving bill failed after lawmakers said it would be too hard for officers to figure out if someone was texting at the wheel. North Carolina troopers have also found that to be a problem. A Channel 9 investigation in February showed how tough it is to prove a driver is texting. They are pushing for lawmakers to make changes to the current law.
