Injured by a driver that was texting and driving?

Texting While DrivingThe Tampa Auto Accident Injury Attorneys of Martin Hernandez PA can help.  And the legislature is trying to help now too.

A bill that would allow police to pull drivers over and ticket them for texting and driving passed its first hurdle on January 9, 2018.  The bill unanimously passed the first committee and it allows law enforcement to make texting a driving a primary offense.  Meaning, if law enforcement sees you texting and driving, they can pull you over immediately.  Previously, it was a secondary offense, meaning you can get a ticket but only after you were stopped for another reason.  If passed, law enforcement can say they saw you texting (or emailing or Facebooking or whatever on your phone) and pulled you over.

Of course, there is an exception. The bill would not restrict using a phone for turn-by-turn directions or for making phone calls or for using hands-free devices.

If you have been injured by a driver that was texting and driving, call Tampa Auto Accident Injury Attorney Martin Hernandez of Fernandez & Hernandez at 813.755.9500.
