Presented without comment: Texting while driving ban results in few tickets:

Texting while driving became against the law in North Carolina last December. But enforcing the texting-while-driving ban has become a law enforcement challenge.

Since the law took effect, the state Highway Patrol has issued two citations in Wake County, while troopers in Durham County have written one.

“It’s an excellent law; it’s just that a trooper has to articulate that a person is in fact texting and not looking at their phone number or making a phone call,” Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Jeff Gordon said.
