TEXTING AND DRIVING BAN PASSES SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE

The Law Offices of Charles D. Scott PA has been engaging in a "Dont Text and Drive" campaign for almost a year now, and have distributed over 3000 bumper stickers. We still have bumper stickers available, that include a small sticker for the back of your phone or dashboard. We also have a free downloadable screen saver on our web site so your phone will remind you not to text and drive.

TALLAHASSEE – FLORIDA SENATE TRANSPORTATION COMMITTEE

Those who text while driving in the state of Florida may have some serious motivation to break the habit. The Senate Transportation Committee approved the no texting and driving bill by a 10-0 Wednesday. The House companion bill, however, has not made it's way through the committee process yet. Offenders caught breaking the ban on texting while driving would face six points on their driver’s licenses, court costs and a $30 fine. The law prohibits driving while manually typing or entering any keys on a wireless device as well as reading messages on those devices. The exceptions to the rule are those who use hands-free devices and emergency responders.
