DPS spokesman Bart Graves told the Arizona Daily Star, "Any speed is not reasonable when you're texting, because you're not fully in control of your driving."

"We are still developing the program, but that is the law we are using," Graves tells New Times.

Word to the wise: "Texting" is probably a blanket term meaning any staring at a cellphone while driving.
