Last week, we wrote about new legislation that would ban texting behind the wheel in Florida. As we mentioned, this legislation marks the fourth time Florida lawmakers are considering such a ban.
With so much legal action going on regarding distracted driving, it’s easy to get confused about current laws and the history of the distracted driving fight in this state. HandsFreeInfo.com – a site created to reduce the confusion over local laws and legislation regarding the operation of motor vehicles while using electronic devices – has compiled a nice list of cellphone laws and legislation in Florida. You can see that list here.
As always, we encourage all Florida drivers to pay attention behind the wheel.
Regardless of the outcome of the legislation, a person who is injured by a distracted driver in Florida may be entitled to compensation. An accident victim will need on a Florida car accident attorney to stand up to insurance companies and if necessary go to court to obtain justice.
