Florida Lawmakers Pass “Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law”

Texting while driving will be outlawed in Florida, provided the Governor signs the bill, which is on its way to his desk. It’s a secondary offense, which means law enforcement is not supposed to pull people over for it. Rather, it should only be ticketed if drivers are stopped for another reason. And don’t get excited if you see a cop happily typing away, law enforcement officers are exempt from the new law!

    Dear Crimcourts, what would be a reasonable defense to a twd citation? Plugging phone in to charge, changing my iTunes mix, turning off a distracting phone alarm? Please help the people!
