Florida’s Texting While Driving Law
Under Florida Law, drivers are prohibited from operating a motor vehicle while typing, reading, or sending any form of electronic communication. When a person reads, types, or sends a text message while behind the wheel, they divert their visual, cognitive, and physical attention away from the roadways, putting innocent drivers and pedestrians at risk. Texting is only one of a myriad of different ways that a person can be distracted while driving.
