AZ Lawmakers Consider Ban On Texting And Driving

Arizona lawmakers will consider a bill that would ban texting while driving.  Previous attempts to pass a statewide texting ban have been shot down, but it's expected to pass this year.  

Earlier this month, a police officer was killed on a Phoenix freeway by a man who admitted he was texting while driving.  

Republican State Senator Kate Brophy McGee introduced a bill this morning that would make it illegal to use a device behind the wheel in Arizona, unless it's in hands-free mode.  

The bill would also make using a cell phone while driving without a hands free device a primary offense, meaning police could pull a driver over just for being on the phone.  

McGee calls texting and driving a public health crisis and the DUI issue of our time.
