The Denton texting-while-driving ban has into effect as of today, according to the Dallas Morning News. The ban was passed in May on a 7-0 vote by the city council. Denton police officers were not able to give out tickets for texting while driving, however, because no signs were available to alert the public. Such signs have been put up in recent weeks, but will not be put up on I-35 to avoid confusing out-of-town drivers. GPS on mounted smartphones and phone calls are still allowed, but all other uses are prohibited, and school zone and bus driver laws still stand.
