Texting while driving: It's already being enforced.

Indiana's new texting while driving law has met with some skepticism about how well enforcement will work, but it appears that law enforcement officers are on the job already. We found two cases in the Doxpop database that were filed during the first week that the new law was in effect- The first in Clinton County, and a second in our hometown of Richmond in Wayne County.

Both counties use the Doxpop On-line Fine Payment system, so the defendants can opt to pay their fines on-line immediately.

We join our legislators in hoping that they choose to pay these fines at home while sitting at a stationary computer!
