On the same day a distracted driving bill was introduced, state Sen. Andrew Brenner, R-Delaware, participated in a government video meeting while driving.
“I wasn’t distracted. I was paying attention to the driving and listening to it (the meeting,)” Brenner said.
House Bill 283, introduced Monday, calls for a ban on writing, sending or reading texts, viewing videos or taking photos, live streaming and using applications while driving.
Previous efforts to make Ohio’s distracted driving laws tougher have failed to gain traction in the state legislature.
