Is Texting and Driving Illegal in Texas?

Texting and driving is not illegal in Texas in most situations unless you’re in a certain city; there are about 40 cities in Texas where it’s illegal to text and drive – Corpus Christi is one of them so you can’t text and drive here.

Now there are also some exceptions to that – like everything – there are exceptions. Nobody can text and drive in a school zone. School bus drivers cannot text and drive. And people getting their learners’ permit and people under 18 years of age cannot text and drive.

Other than that, it’s not illegal to text and drive, per se, in the state of Texas.
