Will the texting-while-driving ban curb your messaging habits?
Gov. Rick Scott has banned texting while driving in Florida. As of Oct. 1, Floridians will officially be prohibited from texting or emailing while driving on the road. But the law may be difficult to enforce. It doesn't apply if you text while your car isn't moving or use talk-to-text programs. You can still use your phone to receive directions and listen to music in the car.
