Who may text while driving on Wisconsin roads?

Texting while driving can be a dangerous practice, increasing the possibility of the driver getting into an auto accident, which is why Wisconsin state law has banned the use of texting while driving. According to Wisconsin Statute 346.89, subsection 3, drivers are forbidden from composing or sending texts or emails in electronic form while driving. This would easily apply to smart phones that many Wisconsin residents own and use in their daily lives. However, state law does provide exceptions to texting prohibitions.

What can happen if you are caught driving drunk?

If you are caught, you face some serious consequences. According to the State of Wisconsin Department of Transportation, if convicted of a DUI, you could lose your license, go to prison and pay huge fines.
