Florida’s Text and Drive Could Get Tougher
If you succumb to the temptation to update your status with text and emoticons while you drive in Florida, you may want to rethink this very dangerous habit. Currently, an officer who observes a driver texting and driving in the State of Florida must have another reason such as speeding or other traffic violation to pull the driver over and issue a citation. Clearly, texting and driving impairs your driving and is a danger to you and others on the road.
There are several legislative proposals up for vote this Spring that would enhance existing statutes and stiffen penalties for texting and driving, especially when a driver who was texting kills someone. Lawmakers are wanting such violations to result in a second–degree felony.
