Missouri State Senate


SB 274 - Currently, only drivers under the age of 21 and drivers of commercial motor vehicles are prohibited from using hand-held cell phones to send, read, or write text messages or electronic messages. This act applies the ban on use of hand-held cell phones to all drivers for the purposes of sending, reading, or writing text messages. Cell phones are permitted to be used by drivers in a hands-free voice activated mode.

This act is similar to SB 3 (2015) and SB 840 (2014) and identical to HB 1964 (2014).
