Flagstaff City Officials reminding motorists of distracted driving ban

In response to April being distracted driving awareness month, the City of Flagstaff and Flagstaff Police Department are reminding the community that a City Ordinance, approved in July 2014, prohibits texting or typing while driving a car or riding a bike. Communications Manager Jessica Drum says the ordinance states no person shall operate a motor vehicle or bicycle using a handheld wireless device to compose, send or read a written message while the motor vehicle or bicycle is in motion. City officials say distracted driving is a big problem and ask motorists to consider that your message can wait. Your life and the lives and safety of those around you is more important.
