The banning of such an activity is an attempt towards preventing drivers from engaging in accident-causing distractions; unfortunately, as noted by a study reported in this techdirt article, these banning laws have simply resulted in more accidents. People who want to text anyway -- especially unskilled young drivers -- begin holding their phones lower to avoid detection, making it that much more difficult to control the car and be aware of their surroundings.
