Some companies go by an honor system or have established discounts, while others like the Miami-based Ryder System have actually begun to track their employees through cameras in company vehicles. Currently, plans are in place by one Florida senator to introduce a new bill banning texting while driving, with a $30 fine being imposed on violators.
