A law to ban texting while driving takes full effect March 1, 2013.  House Bill 99 made texting behind the wheel illegal for motorists of all ages on a secondary enforcement basis.  The offense can be cited only if another moving violation has occurred.  The bill also makes it illegal for driviers under age 18 to use an electronic wireless communication device in any manner.  For novice drivers this means they can be ticketed for texting while driving and for talking on a cell phone.  Teen drivers are subject to having their license suspended for 60 days for a first offense.

Information for this was taken from an article written by AAA East Central.
