People in New York state are already banned from talking on their hand-held cell phones while driving. Now, a state senator wants to ban text messaging while driving, as well. State Senator Carl Marcellino, of Long Island, plans to announce an agreement to pass legislation banning texting while driving.

Those in support of the bill say texting while driving forces drivers to take their eyes off the road, leading to accidents.
