If you text while driving, you're not focused on the road ahead. And that can be deadly. The Ohio Senate is discussing a ban on texting while driving, a measure already approved by the Ohio House. We'll talk about that proposal, discuss local measures already in place and chat about other driver distractions, including cell phones used the old fashioned way -- for talking. And we promise to do none of this behind the wheel. Join us, Thursday at 9:00, right here on 90.3.
