IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) — Idaho State Police say they have issued 66 citations statewide for texting while driving since the texting ban took effect a year ago.

The Post Register reports that 16 of those citations since July 1, 2012, occurred in Bonneville County.

The fine is $81.50. Idaho State Police Lt. Chris Weadick says officers sometimes have a hard time catching motorists in the act of texting. But he says at least there is a law and motorists are aware that texting while driving can be dangerous.
