Local police crack down on texting and driving problem

See the story that aired on Elon Local News here. "Don't text and drive." It's a warning you've probably heard before. However, in North Carolina the actual law makes things a little dicy. Enacted in December 2009, the texting and driving law says you may not manually enter multiple letters or text in the device as a means of communication, or read any electronic mail or text messages while driving. Town of Elon police chief Cliff Parker says what you can do while driving makes it hard for officers to enforce what you can't. "The way the law was written it's not an easy thing to enforce," Parker said. According to records provided to ELN by local law enforcement agencies, the Town of Elon has given five citations for texting and driving.
