Question:

Is it against the law in Florida to text while driving?

Answer:

Texting While DrivingEffective July 1, 2019, a new statute in Florida went into effect that essentially makes it unlawful to text while driving your motor vehicle. That does not mean, however, according to the statute, that you cannot do voice-activated text messaging. The prohibition is essentially against manually inputting letters, numbers and symbols on your phone to send a message to someone else.
