All Hoosiers Closer To Texting While Driving Ban

January 26, 2011 Updated Jan 26, 2011 at 11:09 AM EST

INDIANA (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - The full House voted 85- 11 to ban texting and driving for "all" Hoosiers and sent the bill to the State Senate.

Under the measure, police could pull you over for reading, typing or sending a text while driving and you'd face a $500 fine.

But some lawmakers question how the measure could be enforced.

Right now, Indiana only bans "teenagers" from texting while driving.
