Panel looks to toughen texting & driving ban

A state panel is trying to find ways to improve the state's ban on texting and driving.

Democratic Rep. Penny Bernard Schaber of Appleton is a member of the distracted driving task force. She says police officers told the group that people can easily get out of a ticket, by saying they were actually making a phone call.

Bernard Schaber says the group is not focusing on creating more restrictive bans on cell phone use while driving. She says hopefully they'll have some recommendations ready for the Legislature to consider, by January
