We Know You Have Heard It, BUT Don’t Text and Drive

The Consequences Are Going Up

A law that would allow police to pull people over for texting while driving recently passed its third and final Florida House committee.  

While texting and driving is currently against the law in Florida, police cannot pull people over solely for texting and driving. The stop must be predicated on another offense. 

 The new law would allow police to stop drivers if they notice texting and driving as the primary offense. 

 As attorneys who regularly represent the injured victims of distracted driving, we at Zimmet & Zimmet hope that this new approach becomes law. 

The prevalence of distracted driving is staggering. The next time you are stopped at a red light, look to your left and right to see how many of your fellow drivers are staring at their phones and not paying attention to the roadway. 

In our opinion texting and driving is at least as dangerous as drinking and driving. We need to do what we can to stop it.  If this bill becomes law it may be a good start.
