Is Texting while driving illegal in your state?

 Down here there was a bus driver caught on cell phone camera playing his nintendo ds. Soon after that the state passed a law stating that texting, talking on cell phone, mp3 player, or any kind of electronic device while driving is prohibited. Does your state have a similar law in your state?

Yes, but I still see people txting on the road all the time. I really don't understand the point of trying to txt while you drive.

Texting and talking while driving is illegal here but they don't enforce it very well
