State lawmakers around the country are fighting for stronger legislation to ban texting while driving.  For example, the Utah Senate and the South Dakota Senate recently passed bills banning texting while driving.  Many other states have passed similar measures.  However, enforcement of these laws varies state to state.  Florida’s law banning texting while driving may only be enforced as a secondary offense.  This means that a driver can be cited for texting while driving only after a driver is cited for another, primary offense such as speeding.  The South Dakota Senate bill calls for enforcement as a primary offense.  Texting while driving is dangerous and results in car accidents and personal injury or wrongful death.
