On Thursday the Lubbock City Council will bring up for vote an ordinance that would ban texting while driving. The ordinance put forward by Councilwoman Karen Gibson, Councilman Jim Gerlt, and Councilman Victor Hernandez would ban drivers from texting and reading text messages. However, the ordinance would allow drivers to use voice-based communication like Siri on the iPhone and to view GPS. Officers also would not be able to search a phone.

What do you think about the ordinance? Let us know in today's KFYO Poll of the Day.
