Texting while Driving to be Banned in Florida?

Lawmakers within the panhandle state are mulling over proposed legislation that will ban texting while driving just a year after similar legislation failed to pass. However, word from within the house and the senate is that opposition to this year’s proposed ban seems to be absent.

The strange thing about Senate Bill 416 is that insurance insiders are divided as to whether or not it is needed and whether or not the ban would make texting and driving any safer. Despite the lack of agreement on the effectiveness of such legislation, it is thought that unless a groundswell of opposition develops, the law will pass.
