Proposed Florida law says “if you talk, you walk!”

A proposed Florida law says “if you talk, you walk!” It’s an effort to ban young and new drivers from using their cell phones while driving. Senator Dan Gelber says last year 16-percent of all fatal accidents were linked to cell phone use mainly by young and inexperienced drivers.

If the law goes into effect, it will prevent those under 18 years old from operating a car while using a wireless device. The penalty for violating the proposed legislation would be points on the driver’s license, and minors will be put on driving restrictions for at least three months.
