Two States of USA are Legal for Texting and Driving – Sign 20

Friday, September 23, 2022

I thought all 50 states of America ban or illegal to do texting and driving, but my guessed is pretty wrong.



Fig 01- Sign to “park your phone” while driving.


I just understand after searching through Google that 48 of 50 states have laws to ban text messaging and driving.


This ban also include in District of Columbia (D.C, US capital, Washington) area and other US territories:

- Guam

- the U.S. Virgin Islands

- Puerto Rico


So, we might be wonder: what are two states “allowing” texting while driving?

Two states that “allowing” texting and driving are:

- Missouri

- Montana


However, in case of Missouri, there is “prohibition” for texting and driving at certain ages: drivers at 21 years old or younger. If caught by polices, they will get US$ 200 penalty.


Hence, Montana is the only state in the USA which has no laws to ban or prohibit texting and driving


What do you think?

  5. Oh, No! How can Montana state's lawmakers allow texting while driving? It's so dangerous! Maybe people who live there don't need such law because they already disagree on texting while driving.
    For example, there are some countries where people who drive under the influence of alcohol are prosecuted by penal law, which means jail time and driver's license revocation. On the contrary, countries that have the lowest rate of alcoholismt don't need such law.

    Interesting post and information I didn't know. Thank you for sharing!

  8. It is amazing that there are states that don't ban texting while driving. Even though it is not allowed here in SC we still see plenty of people doing this and driving poorly as a result. So dangerous!

  11. Yes, these are important signs. Distracted driving leads to many crashes and injuries. Cars can be dangerous if not operated with complete concentration.
