State should ban texting while behind the wheel

I agree with the Nov. 3 editorial about the need for state action to ban texting while driving. Lack of action by the state legislature has led to a confusing and wasteful patchwork of local ordinances as we have seen in Beaufort County. While the action of local officials to make up for the ineptitude of state legislative representatives is commendable, it is a distraction from their normal duties to carry out local responsibilities. The fact that South Carolina is one of only three states without such a ban is disgraceful.
