Texting while Driving Stuart, Port St. Lucie and Jupiter FL

Lawyer Stuart FL

The legislature has enacted a bill, signed by the governor which goes into effect on October 1, 2013 regulating texting while driving.  The section may be cited as the “Florida Ban on Texting While Driving Law.”  In FSA 316(3) states:  A person may not operate a motor vehicle while manually typing or entering multiple letters, numbers, symbols, or other characters, into a wireless communications device or whcile sending or reading data in such a device for the purpose of nonvoice interpersonal communication including, but not limited to, communication methods know as texting, e-mailing, and instant messaging.  As used in this section, the term “wireless communications device” means any handheld device used or capable of being used in a handheld manner, that is designed or intended to receive or tansmit text or character-based messages, access or stor data, or connect to the Internet or any communication service as defined in s. 812.15 and that allows text communications.  For the purposes of this paragrach, a motor vehicle that is stationary is not being operated and is not subject to the prohibition in this paragraph.

There are some exceptions to this new legislation, please review the law before using texting, emailing or otherwise typing.  This is a secondary offense action.  The video explains the new Ban on Texting While driving by Stuart Fl Lawyer Randall A. Fischer.
