A Broward County, FL Democrat wants lawmakers to toughen the state’s ban on texting while driving even though similar proposals in the past have been rejected.
Rep. Richard Stark (D-Weston) filed bill HB 47 on Wednesday that would allow police to pull over motorists for texting while driving.
Under current law motorists can only be cited for texting while driving if they are pulled over for other reasons. This is known as a secondary offense.
If passed, Stark’s bill would also double fines for texting while driving in designated school zones or school crossings.
