It is an issue the has been presented many times and some of the residents of Amarillo have finally gotten what they wanted, a city wide cellphone ban while driving.

On Tuesday the city commission passed the law with a 4-1 vote. So get ready, if you drive while talking or texting and get caught you could get fined $200.

A lot of Amarillo residents are against the ban but in the end it is something that could be a helping hand. Deaths can be avoided and you can drive without having to wait on the car in front of you to go at a green light because they are looking down at their cellphone.
