Driving in Florida is not for beginners?
39 states prohibit texting while driving, but Florida isn't one of them.
Despite statistics showing that a driver who texts is 23 times more likely to be in an accident, laws to ban texting while driving have been proposed each year in the Florida legislature but fail to get passed. This year 3 text-ban bills have already been introduced.
But while many support the ban, many also text or talk on their cellphone while driving.
