MARSHALL CO. â€” Texting while driving has been illegal in Indiana since 2011. But will police actually pull you over if they see you looking at your phone behind the wheel?
Plymouth Police Chief Dave Bacon said itâ€™s possible â€” but the law is a tough one for his officers to enforce.
â€śThe way the current law is written, itâ€™s for text messaging and emailing (on a mobile device),â€ť said Bacon. â€śWell, people could be looking at a map online. Will we stop them? Yes, we will stop them. But I donâ€™t think the law is highly enforced the way itâ€™s written now.â€ť
