    That depends - what do you mean by a "moving" violation? Yes, you can be cited while you are moving (since that is what the section addresses). But, it is a zero point offense so no hit to your driver's license.

    @cdwjava, Thanks for your reply. I think you have answered my question.

    There are 3 types of violations using a cellphone while driving:

    (1) talking on cellphone ( not hand-free ) -- zero point to driver's license
    (2) Watching video on cellphone (hand-free or not) -- zero point to driver's license
    (3) Listening to music with both earbuds on -- One point to driver's license

    23123 covers using a cell phone without handsfree. $162 fine, no points.
    23125 covers driving a bus using a cellphone $238 and one point.

    27602 covers any sort of video in view of the driver (cellphone or TV or whatever). $238 and no points (but is correctable)

    27400 covers earphones in both ears: $197 and no points.

    So I'm not seeing anything other than using a phone while driving a school bus or transit vehicle that garners a point.

    Well, if you had been cited for another offense, you run the risk of a point, But, for the violation you posted, no.
