July 1st. Texting Whilst Driving Will Be Illegal In Florida

Just watching the News and the Governor has just signed the bill making texting whilst driving illegal throughout Florida.

First offence $30
Second offence $60

Pathetic fines but at least it's a start.

Probably 10 years too late and the estimate is 250 people die per annum due to distracted texting drivers.

Due to the higher percentage of Police Officers than in the U.K. I suspect there will be lots of tickets issued.

It was already illegal believe it or not but was classed as a "secondary offence". It meant the police couldn't pull you over it but could site you for it if you were pulled over for something else. Unlike the UK though, it still isn't an offense if you are stopped, even at a traffic light.

Donna. When living in the U.K. Did you notice most people at traffic lights etc were looking at their lap - where the phone undoubtedly was.

I remember them being more subtle than here. The fact that 99% drive automatics here makes it alot easier to hold your phone and drive.

We spotted the same, one woman holding her iPad on her steering wheel watching a programme.

You can always tell those on their phones by the constant brake tapping...
