Distractions while driving, such as texting and talking on cellular phones have become an increasing problem and are rapidly becoming a leading cause of accidents, especially with younger drivers. Although Florida has not outlawed texting while driving, many states have. I will admit that I have texted while driving and without question use my cellular frequently while on the road (a necessary evil when running a law practice), but I know the dangers involved and support a ban on texting while driving. Volusia county has dangerous roads and also has the dubious distinction of having the intersection of two of the most dangerous highways in the country, I-95 and I-4. Distractions should be minimized in order to avoid the dangers of Florida's highways. Be safe, pay attention to the road and drivers around you.
