Missouri state legislatures are considering a texting bill for all drivers in the state. The current state law only prohibits drivers under the age of 21 from texting while driving.
The new bill would ban texting while driving for all ages including a ban for the use of GPS receivers while driving.
According to the Missouri Department of Transportation around 100 people were killed in 2016 in crashes that involved a distracted driver.
