Lawmakers To Consider Changes To Texting and Driving Ban

Posted: Updated:
 A South Florida lawmaker has introduced a bill that would make it easier for law enforcement officers to pull someone over for texting and driving.
State Senator Maria Sach of Delray Beach sponsored the bill that would allow police to stop motorist for texting and driving.
Under the current law, officers must find another violation to pull a motorist over, then write them up for texting and driving.
It's what's known as a "secondary offense".
Florida's current texting and driving ban took effect October 1.
