Florida Texting Ban Bill Dies in House

By / 0 Comments /

Texting while driving will remain legal in Florida despite it being almost unquestionably dangerous.  A bill designed to combat distracted driving failed to move forward in the House after gaining some traction in the Senate. The proposed bill would have allowed police officers to tack on a ticket for text messaging while driving to motorists pulled over for other driving offenses.

Unfortunately, Florida did not join the 35 other states with laws prohibiting all drivers from texting while behind the wheel. Three states have specific laws banning school bus drivers from text messaging (Mississippi, Oklahoma and Texas). Individual school districts may prohibit school bus operators from using cell phones while driving.  The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) has recommended that all 50 states and the District of Columbia outlaw the use of all forms of wireless communication while driving.

If you, or a loved one, have been injured due to someone else’s texting while driving, you can still recover for your injuries despite the state legislature’s failure to outlaw it.  Call the experienced automobile accident attorneys with our office so they can start working to recover your compensation now.
