Texting and driving ban rarely enforced in Cleveland

It is against the law to text and drive in the city of Cleveland, but the law is not really being enforced.

In 2010, 40 tickets were given out with a total of $1,075 collected in fines.

In 2011, up until June 29th, just 16 tickets were given out with a total of $115 collected in fines.

The Ohio House recently passed a bill to ban texting and driving statewide.

The Ohio Senate will now vote on the bill before it goes to the Governor.
