Action Alert: Ask your representative to vote YES on HB 80

The statewide ban on texting while driving has passed out of committee and is headed to the House floor on Wednesday, March 25.

Forty-five states have banned texting while driving. It's time for Texas to join with most of the country to make our roads safer for all road users by keeping this dangerous activity out from behind the wheel. Read the text of the bill here.  

We've found the following format to be useful when contacting elected officials:

  1. My name is _____ and my occupation is _____. I live in District ____. I ride a bike.
  2. Please support HB 80 to ban texting while driving in Texas.
  3. (Tell your representative why this legislation is important to you.)
  4. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Thank you for making Texas a great place to ride a bike!
