Community Rallies For Texting While Driving Ban In Florida

After just one week, more than 500 people have signed a call to action in support of a law that would ban texting while driving in Florida.

“We will build on this momentum,” Sheriff Rambosk said. “People tell me daily that they want to see a law like this, so I know the support is out there.”

The Collier County Sheriff’s Office kicked off the “Stop Texting & Driving” campaign Nov. 28. As of 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, 522 people had signed the online document. Sheriff Rambosk will deliver the results to the Collier County Legislative Delegation and also present them during the Legislative Session.

Citizens are also sharing their texting while driving stories, including several written by people who have lost family members to accidents that were caused by someone who was texting while driving.
