Petition To Force Vote On Amarillo’s Hands Free While Driving Ordinance Turned Into City

A petition that has ramifications for Amarillo’s hands-free-while driving ordinance has been turned into city commissioners.

The ban has been in effect since February and in that time nearly 40 people have been cited under the new law.  Signs have been erected at every entry point to the city warning drivers of the ban.  A recently turned in petition hopes to change that.

David Kossey had been collecting the signatures since the ordinance took effect.  Because of low voter turnout in the last election, Kossey need a little more than 1,800 signatures to force a city-wide vote on the issue.

The commissioner are currently verifying the signatures.  If the signatures are valid the city could decide to hold a vote on the ordinance or could simply abolish the ban.
