Last updated on Monday, December 22, 2008

(BLOOMINGTON)- Don’t text while driving after January 1st in Monroe County unless you’re willing to pay the price!

Drivers who write, read, or send messages, or even surf the internet while on the road will now face a $25 fine. The ordinance was approved yesterday.

The county-wide ban does not apply within the Bloomington city limits.
