If you're caught texting and driving in the city of Conroe, you could end up paying hundreds of dollars. The city passed an ordinance this morning that prohibits texting while driving in the city limits. If you're caught, the fine can be up to $500. The ban goes into effect early next month.

Conroe joins other cities in our area that have passed similar ordinances -- including Bellaire, West University Place and Galveston.
