TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) _ Kansas outlawed texting while driving last year, but officials are going an extra mile to make sure everyone knows the law.
A proclamation signed by Gov. Sam Brownback designated Wednesday as ``No Text on Board Pledge Day.''
The Kansas Department of Transportation planned to flash messages on electronic billboards along state roads reminding drivers not to text behind the wheel.
Brownback's office says a recent study that found people who text while driving are 23 times more likely to crash.
The 2011 state law provides for a $60 fine for any driver cited for texting.
