FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) -- City officials in Flagstaff have approved a ban on texting while driving or riding a bicycle.
The Arizona Daily Sun reports the Flagstaff City Council unanimously voted to enact the ban Tuesday night.
The ordinance, however, does not go as far as a county-wide ban.
Coconino County passed a ban in May that forbids all cellphone use without a hands-free device.
The Flagstaff ban is limited to texting or typing for emails or any instant messaging program while a vehicle is in motion. But motorists and cyclists can text or email if they are at a red light or pulled over on the side of the road.
Council members say no county officials reached out to them about coordinating efforts.
