Editorial: Illegal texting while driving needs to stop
Jeers to the young man who was seen text messaging while driving a motorcycle in and out of traffic through Park Rapids last week.
This is extremely dangerous and illegal. Text messaging, emailing or accessing the Web on a wireless device while driving - including while stopped in traffic - is illegal on Minnesota roads.
The violation can cost up to $300. As a primary offense, law enforcement can stop a motorist if they observe a driver in violation of the law.
