The most exciting results from the Florida Text and Drive Ban may come in the future; when other states see the law curb road deaths and adopt similar measures.
The Florida Text and Drive Ban, which takes effect October 1st, 2013, is the most stringent law of its kind in the nation. It is a strong step forward toward Safe Driving enforcement for both teens and adults and, if enforced effectively, could lead to a dramatic change in the depressing fatality statistics from recent years.
Those statistics have been chilling: 3,000 teens died from distracted driving last year. Statistics for adults bring the number closer to 10,000 nationally – with Florida being a key culprit.
As Floridians brace to abide by the new Florida Text and Drive Ban, parents have a fresh worry: will their teens abide by its tenets or get caught texting and cause their parents serious legal problems?
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.
