Q: Does Florida Have A Texting Ban?

A: Governor Charlie Christ promised to sign a Florida ban on text messaging, but no distracted driving legislation succeeded during 2010. In 2009, Florida legislature also rejected bills that would limit drivers’ use of cell phones and text messaging devices.

More than a dozen vehicle safety bills regarding talking and texting have been under consideration in the past several years.

Texting while driving has been conclusively linked to car accidents and fatalities in West Palm Beach. If you have been involved with a car accident due to a driver distracted by texting, contact an experienced West Palm Beach car accident attorney immediately.

Although all attempts to pass such a bill have recently failed, state representatives say that the statistics linking text messaging to car accidents and fatalities in Florida are too overwhelming to ignore and that they will be back with another piece of legislation that will address text messaging while driving.

If you or someone you know has experienced loss from a texting-related car accident in Florida, contact a West Palm Beach car accident attorney at Fetterman & Associates.

Our dedicated and experienced professionals will help you sort through the fear and confusion that often accompanies a devastating car accident and ensure that you get the compensation and protection you deserve.
