The Florida House and Senate have finally agreed to a ban on texting and driving, but the Governor has not as of yet affixed his signature to the bill. That could change this weekend, but as a new report shows, he has remained mum on how he feels about the matter. The closest he has come to an acknowledgement of the bill’s advisability is the admission that he worries about texting as a grandfather. A local defense attorney explains that Florida’s pending ban is relatively lax and that, as a secondary offense, it’s going to be hard for police to prove that a texting and driving offense occurred. Still, lawmakers believe the law is a good first step and hope the Governor will sign it.
