    Michigan is the 23rd state to ban drivers from texting while driving a vehicle. Here is what’s going in effect on July 1st, 2010. The short version.

    -Texting while driving becomes illegal starting July 1.

    -The law prohibits reading, typing or sending text messages using a wireless two-way communication device in the person’s hand or lap while driving a car.

    -Drivers can still use dash-mounted navigation systems.

    -Police can pull over drivers if they see them texting at the wheel, even if there’s no other reason to flag them down.

    -Violators will be fined up to $100 for a first offense, and up to $200 for additional offenses.

    -The ticket won’t come with points, and will not become part of a driver’s permanent record.
