New Arizona law bans newly licensed teens from texting while driving

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, on any given day, approximately 481,000 drivers are using cell phones on the road.

This data, coupled with the fact that teen drivers have the highest crash rate over any other age group, led to Arizona's new law to prohibit young drivers from texting behind the wheel.

The law has its limitations but ultimately prohibits drivers from ages 15 to 18 from using cell phones while driving while they hold a permit and for the first six months after receiving a license.
