Currently, Indiana does not ban the use of handheld cell phones and other voice communication devices for drivers at least age 18 and older.
Drivers are prohibited from typing , sending, or reading a text message, e-mail, or other electronic or digital message while a vehicle is in motion. Violators face a fine of up to $500 (IN Code Sec. 9-21-8-59 ).
Entering phone numbers into cell phones and information into global positioning systems while driving are exempt from this law.
Drivers are permitted to text a message to report a bona fide emergency.
