Arizona is one of just three states that has no statewide ban on texting while driving, but that could change this year after a decade of failed attempts in the Legislature to outlaw it. The death of a police officer struck by a driver last Jan. 8, 2019, who was allegedly texting may be a catalyst for lawmakers to change the law. The Senate has passed three bills to punish distracted drivers, but they're held up in the House amid a disagreement among Republicans about how far to go in legislating behavior.
