Distracted Driving in Florida
Here are some examples of distracted driving in Florida:
- Using a hand-held cell phone while driving
- Texting while driving
- Fiddling with the car’s sound system or navigation system
- Eating or drinking while driving
- Grooming oneself while driving
- Reading while driving
- Watching a video while driving
All of these activities take the driver’s focus away from the task of driving, and can potentially lead to an accident. In Florida, it is against the law to text while driving. It is also against the law to use a hand-held cell phone while driving. These laws are in place to help make Florida roads safer for everyone. Violators of these laws may be subject to a fine and points on their driver’s license.
If you are caught driving while distracted, you may be putting yourself and others at risk. Distracted driving can lead to serious accidents, and even fatalities. If you must use your cell phone or text while driving, pull over to a safe location first. And always remember to drive safely and responsibly.
