Florida Senate Passes Texting and Driving Bill

April 18, 2013

We previously blogged about Florida’s proposed legislation to ban texting and driving.  This week, a proposed bill sailed through the Florida Senate, paving the way for the bill to become a law if it is passed by the House.

The proposed bill will making texting and driving a secondary offense, which means that you have to get pulled over for some other traffic violation.  Under the current proposed law, texting at red lights is still allowed. If this bill makes its way into law, Florida will finally join the 39 other states that ban texting while driving.
