LIMA — Thanks to a new law, answering a text or eating while behind the wheel might literally cost you.
A new distracted driving law that went into effect at the end of October tags an extra $100 fine to a traffic violation if a driver is found to be inattentive while operating a vehicle.
“A lot of people tend to think, ‘I can do this. It’s not a danger,’ and it’s not a problem until it is a problem,” Lt. Tim Grigsby, Lima post commander with the Ohio Highway Patrol, said.
