Is It Legal To Text While Driving In The State Of Florida?
A: As of July 31, 2009, texting while driving is legal in the state of Florida, but statistics from recent studies prove that the act is not only dangerous, but potentially fatal. Far too many drivers and passengers have been killed as a result of auto accidents caused by text messaging behind the wheel, which some studies have found to be even more dangerous than drunk driving. Currently, Florida legislators are proposing that texting while driving be banned in the state.
