Starting tomorrow October 1st, Texting & Driving will now be illegal in the entire state of Florida.
While you are driving you are prohibited from texting. But you ARE allowed to text while you are stopped in congested traffic or stopped at a red traffic light.
Texting & Driving will be considered a secondary offense, meaning, you will have to be doing something else wrong like speeding or driving recklessly in order to be pulled over.
The first warning comes with a $30 fine plus court costs. And a second warning comes with a $60 fine.
Stay safe ya’ll. A lot of us are guilty of this, but the reality is that a simple text is not worth your life.
