I got pulled over for texting and driving in jan of this year and it was a warning. I believe it is only a secondary offense so if they lagitmatly pull you over for something else AND your caught texting they can fine you.

Thanks goodness they stopped you before you killed someone.

IMHO, I guess the officer was in a hurry or only wanted to give you a warning. (S/he might have been on a call when your disregard for the safety of others interrupted him/her) You can always be pulled over for careless driving (failure to control, use due care, etc...), even if the proximate cause for it, is texting. I hope you learned from it.

Doesn't take long following someone to get a primary reason to pull you over and give you a ticket...
