Camden police ticketing texters : News : WACH

If you are planning a trip to Camden, SC don't plan on doing any 'Texting" while you are driving... Camden Police will be giving you 'text' of another sort if you do.

Camden police ticketing texters : News : WACH: "CAMDEN -- Camden Police are now ticketing drivers who text while behind the wheel.

However, there are exceptions.

The ordinance that was passed last week says it's illegal for drivers in motion to text or read text messages, printed material or email.
