It's now illegal to text while driving in Tomball. Tomball is the latest city in the Houston area to outlaw texting and e-mailing while driving.

There are similar bans in Bellaire, West University Place, Galveston and Missouri City. Drivers heading through Tomball are still allowed to talk on their smart-phones and operate their GPS systems.
