New Florid distracted driving laws aimed at keeping roads safe

Legal protections are available to hold distracted drivers accountable for the harm they cause. New Florida laws going into effect at the beginning of October will require all Florida drivers to be hands free in certain areas. The new law will require drivers to put down electronic devices, including cell phones and GPS devices, in school zones and work zones where workers are present. Texting while driving is also now a primary offense in Florida. Authorities note that there is a grace period but they plan to begin ticketing at the first of next year. Drivers face fees, points on their license and increased insurance costs.

For the victims of these types of accidents, trying to discover ways to cover the added costs can be challenging.
