Texting and driving illegal in Lawton

LAWTON, Okla._Starting November 1st it will be illegal to text and drive in the city of Lawton.

That's after City Council voted Tuesday night to comply with the State's decision to ban texting and driving. Governor Mary Fallin signed the bill into law back in May.

It allows an officer to issue a $100 ticket if you're spotted texting behind the wheel.

The bill does contain some exceptions for certain emergency situations, and specifies it will not apply to devices operated in a voice-activated mode.
