HHI Town Council to vote on texting while driving ban

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (WTOC) -

Texting while driving may soon be banned on Hilton Head Island.

On Tuesday night, the town council is expected to vote on a proposal that would ban drivers from texting while behind the wheel.

If the proposal passé, Hilton Head would become the eighth town in South Carolina with this kind of ban. The proposal does allow drivers over 18 to use their phones for GPS, playing music or make a phone call. Those 18 and younger would not be allowed to use their phones at all.
