Missouri Legislation Addresses Texting While Driving

News

The bill is proposed by senator Bob Dixon, and was presented to the Senate Transportation, Infrastructure and Public Safety Committee on Thursday. Missouri is currently one of three states that doesn’t ban texting for all drivers. The state law only prohibits drivers under 21 from texting while behind the wheel.  There is no Missouri law that specifically addresses texting while driving for people older than 21.
