Texting on Carrollwood Area Roads: Should it be Illegal?
The Florida Senate is once again considering joining the 39 states that have already outlawed the act on their roads.
Carrollwood area motorists who like to cruise down area roads while sending text messages to their friends might soon find themselves on the wrong side of the law.
While the state’s Legislature has tried to ban the act in the past and failed, proponents of the measure keep bringing it back up.
If the bill makes it through the Legislature, it would make texting behind the wheel a secondary offense, the Tribune reported. That means police would have to have another reason to pull a driver over to be able to issue a ticket.
