There is no prohibition on cell phone use while driving in Wyoming. However, all Wyoming drivers are prohibited from texting.
Drivers are prohibited from texting. There are a few exceptions to the texting ban. Drivers may read, write, or send texts in these circumstances:
- while they are legally parked
- to contact an emergency response vehicle, such as an ambulance, fire truck, or police vehicle, or
- while using voice-operated or hands-free technology.
How is it Enforced?
The penalty for violating the texting law is a fine of up to $75. Wyoming’s texting laws are considered “primary” laws. A primary law means that an officer can pull you over for the offense without having to witness some other violation. That is, the officer sees you texting and issues a citation.
