El Paso is one step closer to banning cell phones while driving.
City Council has unanimously voted to introduce an ordinance that would do just that. Representative Rachael Quintana is behind the proposed ban that could go into effect as soon as April 1st.
She put the item on yesterday's agenda, saying the law would make city streets safer.
The next step is public comment. That's when you can weigh in on the issue in front of city council. It's also when council could make a final vote on the issue.
That'll happen in two weeks.
