Distracted Driving

The focus of our last post was to outline a Florida ban on wireless communication while driving, which was adopted in an attempt to prevent crashes and improve safety for pedestrians, vehicle operators, passengers, and bike riders. It also allowed law enforcement to stop and issues citations to people texting while driving. The ban stresses that a motor vehicle is not to be operated by a person entering symbols, multiple letters, numbers, characters, or manually typing. This Florida statute (Title XXIII Chap. 16.305) prohibiting the use of wireless communication devices was created with safety as a primary goal.
