The texting while driving ban is one step away from reality in Michigan.
The bill is on its way to Governor Granholm after being passed by both the state House and Senate.
It would make texting while driving a primary offense. That means a police officer can pull a driver over if it is suspected they are texting behind the wheel. The first offense carries a $100 fine, any offense after that is a $200 fine.
Once Governor Granholm signs the bill, police can begin enforcing the law on July 1.
