Florida's Texting While Driving Law Is in Full Effect

Miami, FL – 02/18/2020 – Florida police have provided drivers with alerts and information about the new hands-free law updates since October of last year. Nonetheless, the "grace period" warning is over, allowing police to issue tickets in certain areas for anyone found driving with a hands-free mobile device in their possession.


Miami, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/18/2020 -- Drivers that are spotted with a "wireless communication device" while driving through construction or school zones may receive a moving violation that comes with fines attached. Last year, drivers received tear-off reminders regarding the new law provisions and their related fines as a way to warn drivers about the law and help them become aware of it. Now that it's 2020, drivers may receive citations and fines.
