House Bill 107 (CS/HB 107: Wireless Communications While Driving), which makes texting while driving a primary traffic offense and which states that a motorist can be pulled over and issued a citation for not using a device in a hands-free manner in school and work zones, is in full effect as of Wednesday, January 1, 2020.  

Florida residents are encouraged to take part in the Put it Down campaign and focus on driving. To learn more about the campaign and about the law, please refer to the Florida Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website at: Put it Down - Focus on Driving
Be safe, be smart, and be responsible.
