I don’t have to ask you nicely any more. It’s a LAW. SO STOP TEXTING AND DRIVING. Miami (and Florida) folks: Texting and driving might not only kill you, but it will cost you.
The texting law that goes into effect TODAY, October 1, 2013, does not allow police to pull over a driver solely for texting — officers need to witness another violation, such as running a stop sign. Then, police can add on driving while texting as a secondary violation. The penalty is $30 plus court costs for a first offense and then doubles for the second offense. Read the law: Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law.
Florida is the 41st state to enact such a ban but the majority view texting while driving as a primary violation. In Florida, drivers can continue to text at a red light or use a talk-to-text device.
