Florida is one of only five states in the U.S. where texting while driving is merely a secondary offense. That means that law enforcement can issue a citation only if the driver has been stopped for a primary traffic offense like speeding.
There are three pending bills in the Florida Legislature that will address this problem: House Bill HB 47 and its corresponding bill CS/SB 144 in the Senate, and Senate Bill SB 1742. Unfortunately, none of these bills is going anywhere this session!
HERE ARE 2 THINGS YOU CAN DO
1) Join the NPC Distracted Driving (Virtual) Committee and commit to pressing legislators to pass a Distracted Driving bill next session. The committee will convene virtually - no meetings - and share information, ideas, and strategy via email beginning May 8.
2) Share these statistics from the National Safety Council with your friends and family and make them aware of the dangers of Distracted Driving.
