Note: While there is no state law prohibiting cell phone use, several municipalities in Kansas have ordinances banning the use of cell phones while driving.
Kansas law prohibits drivers from using a wireless device to write, send, or read a written communication, including texts, instant messages, and e-mails, while operating a vehicle (KS Admin. Reg. Sec. 8-15,111). The law does not ban sending or reading messages in vehicles stopped off travel lanes of roads and highways.
Exempt from the law is the reading of emergency traffic or weather alerts and the sending of messages related to the operation or navigation of a vehicle and the sending of messages to report a crime or risk of injury to a person or property. The law does not apply to entering phone numbers or addresses into electronic devices.
