Texting and driving banned for most of Beaufort County

Posted: Updated:
BEAUFORT CO., SC (WTOC) -

It is now against the law to text and drive in almost all of Beaufort County; However, motorists are generally getting warnings, not tickets, for violations. 

All municipalities in the county now have ordinances against texting and driving except for the town of Yemassee. 

Sheriff P.J. Tanner says an officer has the discretion to issue a ticket or just give a warning, but says drivers seem more mindful now and texting while driving is not as blatant as before the original ordinance took effect.
