GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville City Council unanimously passed the first reading of the distracted driving ban on Monday.

The ban will require drivers to go completely hands-free while driving in the city limits.

According to FOX Carolina crews at the meeting no citizens spoke for or against the ban.

Council members said they first started talking about a proposed ban back in July 2012. Since then they said they've set up surveys and meetings to get input from the public.

The council said research shows out of those who participated in the survey, 59 percent of them approve a ban.
