The bill would make it illegal for a driver to use a mobile phone to “compose, send or read an electronic text message” while the vehicle is in motion. Violators will face a fine of up to $100.

The Senate narrowly approved an amendment to make texting while driving a primary offense, meaning an officer can stop a motorist if they spot them using a mobile phone.
