Florida is one of only nine states without some sort of ban on texting while driving. Now, lawmakers are looking to change that.
Around 6,000 people die in Florida each year because of distracted driving. Texting is one of the main distractions.
Lawmakers filed a bill to make texting while driving a secondary offense. That means a police officer can not pull you over just for texting.
But if you are pulled over for something else, you could be fined for texting.
First time offenses will cost you $30. If you're caught twice within five years, the cost doubles.
