MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - State legislators didn't pass legislation banning texting while driving so now the Prattville City Council is considering a proposal to ban it while driving inside their city limits. 

That ban would include reading electronic messages while driving. 

Do we need a bill or an ordinance to do what makes sense? 

We control our own actions and certainly can exercise some control over the actions of our children. 

Just because our state legislators didn't pass a ban on texting while driving doesn't mean we can't enforce it ourselves. 

We all are time challenged and it is tempting to read or respond to texts while stopped at a red light.  

Resist the temptation.  And certainly resist it while driving!
