    The Battle Creek City Commission passed an ordinance that would more clearly define distracted driving.

    The ordinance passed Tuesday would make it illegal to hold and talk on a cell phone while a car is in motion. Talking into a mounted phone or a Bluetooth device would still be permitted.

    The ordinance would go into effect on Feb. 15.

    Michigan law already prohibits texting and driving.
