(FOX 35) – A bill targeting texting and driving is now one step closer to becoming law.

The Florida Senate passed its version Thursday night.

What it means it that pretty soon it could be illegal to even touch your phone while driving. So if an officer sees you texting or holding your phone up to your ear while behind the wheel, you could get pulled over.

The state Senate voted 33 to 5 to pass a bill banning texting while driving as well as talking on a cellphone while in school and construction zones.

Instead, drivers would have to use a hands-free device if they wanted to communicate on their phones.
