(Indianapolis, Ind.) - A bill to ban texting while driving for all drivers in Indiana has passed one chamber at the Statehouse.
An 85-11 vote in the House Tuesday sends the bill to the Senate.
Last year Indiana began a ban on texting while driving for people under the age of 18, but the new bill seeks to expand that rule to all drivers.
The proposal would allow for drivers to use a hands free device.
Sending a text or e-mail would be a Class C infraction and could result in a fine up to $500.
