This is hardly new news, but it never hurts to have a reminder. A no texting while driving law is now in effect in the Florida Keys. US Highway 1, which runs from Key Largo to Key West, is our main road and is mostly two lanes. It is especially important that drivers not be distracted while driving on this road. 23% of all car accidents every year involve cell phone use while driving which equates to about 1.3 million crashes. So avoid distractions and keep your eyes on the road!

Yep, the law here is "No Handheld Devices while driving".  A friend reported getting a $200 fine, ouch!  Your article is a great reminder Team Mullins .

Texting is a great way to communicate but it is so important to not text and drive.  A text can always wait until a car is stopped. Thanks for sharing.

I cannot understand how this is such a hard LAW to enforce. 

The only thing I can figure is that, for survivors, the punishment is not sufficiently severe.

Both hands on the wheel while driving.  I try to stay far away from other vehicles due to bad drivers and bad habits.
