Beginning July 1, it will be illegal for drivers in Indiana to text while behind the wheel. Gov. Mitch Daniels on Wednesday signed legislation prohibiting the use of any hand-held telecommunications device to type, transmit, or read text messages or e-mail while operating a moving motor vehicle. Offenders could face fines up to $500. "Drivers who use hand-held devices are four times more likely to be involved in a collision serious enough to cause injury," said Ryan Klitzsch, Indiana Criminal Justice Institute Traffic Safety Division Director.
