HIGHLAND, Utah (AP) -- Talking on your cell phone while driving in Highland may soon cost you big bucks.

City officials are considering a law which would making eating, drinking, putting on makeup and talking on a cell phone illegal while driving.

If it passed, Highland would be the third Utah city to pass the "Inattentive Driving Law," following the lead of Sandy and American Fork.

If you're caught talking and driving, you could face up to a $100 fine.

The infraction would be a secondary offense, meaning that drivers can only be fined if they are pulled over for another moving violation.

A public hearing on the proposal ban is scheduled April 5.
