Texting While Driving Now
Illegal in Florida

dreamstime_xs_29384372Texting while driving has never been a good idea, and now, starting Oct. 1, it will also be illegal. That’s when a new ban on texting while driving goes into effect.

Motorists are now looking at a $30 fine for the first offense and $60 for a second, plus court costs. As with all driving laws and the tickets they involve, there are some things you should know.

Unfortunately, while we don’t object to a law prohibiting texting while driving – never a good idea – the State of Florida dropped the cell phone (so to speak) when enacting this one.

For one thing, the state is doing next to nothing to get the word out about the fact that the law already went into effect. Chances are that with all the media hoopla many knew a ban on texting while driving was coming (we wrote a blog about it as far back as May). But don’t feel uninformed if you didn’t know it was already here.
