Starting January 1, California drivers will be banned from sending, writing or reading messages on electronic devices. Darn Blackberry! Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation Wednesday that imposes a $20 fine for a first offense of texting while driving and a $50 fine for any subsequent violation. Schwarzenegger said he was "happy to sign" the prohibition against text messaging, which surveys show is a common problem. "Banning electronic text messaging while driving will keep drivers' hands on the wheel and their eyes on the road, making our roadways a safer place for all Californians," he said.
