Texting while driving is legal in Pennsylvania. But that may soon change. State lawmakers have been debating for years over whether to place restrictions on texting and driving. Both sides appear close to resolving the issue and enacting laws prohibiting texting while driving in Pennsylvania. If Pennsylvania does so, it will join 34 other states and the District of Columbia, all of which currently ban texting while driving. New Jersey is one of the 34 states.
