Hawaii has recently become the 40th state in the United States to ban texting while driving. The director of the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, Barbara Harsha, stated, “This action sends an important message to all Hawaii drivers: cell phone use and driving do not mix.” In addition to text messaging, all hand-held cell phone use is also prohibited by the new law.
