Texting falls into the same category as voice under the provision of this law. Kind of like unsafe speed infraction for speed limits.
"The law does not specifically prohibit that, but an officer can pull over and issue a citation to a driver of any age if, in the officer’s opinion, the driver was distracted and not operating the vehicle safely. Text paging while driving is unsafe at any speed and is strongly discouraged"
