HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Distracted drivers have been a growing problem as mobile technology has placed texting and emailing abilities in the driver's seat.
Thursday morning, the Cabell County Commission adopted a policy against texting and emailing while driving county owned vehicles.
Although the policy officially takes affect today, the Cabell Sheriff's department adopted this policy more than a year ago, according to Sheriff Tom McComas.
The commission also awarded Dixon Electrical the contract for a new fire alarm system for the Cabell Courthouse. The wining bid came in at a little more than $153,000.
