Florida Senate lawmakers are poised to vote on a bill to ban texting while driving. However, it appears the measure may die in the House for the third straight year.
The Florida Senate Budget Committee approved the bill that would make texting a secondary offense — meaning a motorist could not be stopped on the basis of that alone. A fine would be the only available punishment.
Thirty-five other states have enacted similar bans. But a similar bill, remains stalled in the Florida House. AAA is urging the House to take up the bill, citing a survey by the motoring group that showed four out of five Florida voters favor a ban on texting while driving.
