Florida Text and Drive Ban Goes into Effect October 1, 2013
By Paul Grossinger
Exciting News! The Florida Text and Drive Ban goes into effect October 1st, creating one of the most stringent anti-text and drive bans in the nation.
The Florida Text and Drive Ban mandates that drivers – both adults and teens – may not text behind the wheel and face significant fines and penalties as a secondary offense if caught by police.
All across the state, town councils, local law enforcement, and municipal authorities quickly implemented broad plans for the law, which is expected to be routinely enforced.
While adults will have to police themselves – or face the consequences to their pocketbook – teens create a different type of dilemma for parents, who will have to guarantee to foot the bill and aggravation for any infractions caused by their children.
For many parents, that enforcement seems a daunting prospect, given they cannot be next to teens constantly and have difficulty making teens abide by the rules. MMGuardian can change that for parents.
MMGuardian gives parents the capability to enforce the Florida Text and Drive Ban.
MMGuardian Parental Control for android smartphones includes a Safe Driving feature. The Safe Driving feature blocks teens from sending or receiving text messages when they are driving a car. Parents do not need to constantly monitor the Safe Driving feature for it to work; once enabled Safe Driving protects teens 24/7. All a parent needs to do is download MMGuardian, register the application, enable the Safe Driving feature, and they are done.
The whole process takes 15 minutes and MMGuardian’s Safe Driving feature is free.
So, if parents are worried their teens will violate the Florida Text and Drive Ban, MMGuardian is the answer.
