Lawmakers in Massachusetts are still pushing for a ban on cellphone usage at the wheel. At the moment, texting while driving is illegal within the state and has been for nearly three years.

Supporters believe that the texting ban will always have its hands figuratively tied behind its back without an outright ban on cellphone usage.
