As of October 1st, U.S. government workers are not allowed to send or read text messages while driving on government business.
President Obama said this in an executive order.
The order says "texting" includes any kind of communicating, or getting information, with electronic devices. "Driving" means the motor of the car is running -- even if the car is stopped at a red light or in traffic.
The U.S. government says it hopes its contractors, and all citizens, will do the same.
