FLORIDA LEGISLATORS PASS BILL TO BAN TEXTING

The Senate unanimously approved a bill {SB 52} that would make texting while driving a secondary offense. That means police have to first to stop drivers for an offense like speeding. A first violation would be a $30 fine plus court costs. A second or subsequent violation within five years would add three points to the driver's license and a $60 fine. The bill scheduled to go into effect on October 1, 2013 was presented to Governor Rick Scott on May 21, 2013 for signing.

Use of Wireless Communications Devices While Driving: Creating the "Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law"; prohibiting the operation of a motor vehicle while using a wireless communications device for certain purposes; defining the term "wireless communications device"; specifying information that is admissible as evidence of a violation; providing for enforcement as a secondary action; providing for points to be assessed against a driver license for the unlawful use of a wireless communications device within a school safety zone or resulting in a crash, etc.

Although many types of distractions are hazardous to drivers, much attention has been placed on banning texting while driving. Texting has been found to be a particularly dangerous type of distraction for motorists on the road. When someone is injured in a collision caused by a distracted driver, he or she may be entitled to compensation. Consulting with a skilled personal injury attorney will ensure your rights are protected.
