Holding your cell phone while driving will soon be a thing of the past in San Antonio. At Thursday's city council meeting, members voted unanimously to enact a hands-free only policy.
The new ordinance, which replaces previous ordinances which have banned texting while driving within the city limits, was proposed by District 10 Councilman Mike Gallagher.
“A texting driver is 23 times more likely to get into an accident," said Gallagher. "It’s those statistics that say what we’re doing here is very, very important.”
