Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk: I support a law that bans texting while driving in Florida.

    1. Petition by

      Collier County Sheriff's Office

 

Please count me as a supporter of legislation that would make it illegal to text while driving in Florida. Texting while driving increases the odds of a crash by up to 23 percent. The National Safety Council estimates that 28 percent of the crashes that occur in the United States involve cell phone usage.  By signing this petition I also pledge that although it is not currently illegal in Florida, I will not text while driving.

To:
Sheriff Kevin Rambosk, Collier County Sheriff Kevin Rambosk
Texting while driving is unsafe. I support the creation of a law that would make it illegal to text while driving in the state of Florida.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      I, Mike DiMauro, am writing to you because I need to say a thing or two why it is IMPORTANT to pass a law to make texting while driving illegal and even using a cell phone while driving illegal! On February 8, 2013, I was coming home from the Florida State Fair in Tampa, FL and traffic was backed up on I-4 East. I was exiting to go onto US 92 East. As I was doing that, I was calling 511 on my smart phone to know what the traffic report was on I-4 further down the road. The next thing I know, my car hit the car in front of me and the front end of my car was totaled! The radiator was gone. The bumper was gone. The hood was bent. The windshield got cracked. The headlights got broke. It was not a fun site to see! I was cited for careless driving and I took driving school to get the points off of my license. I was also shoken up from the accident and I didn't feel comfortable driving for two months! I do not want anyone else to go through what I went through. PLEASE PASS A LAW TO BAN TEXTING WHILE DRIVING AND BAN USING A CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING FOR DRIVERS ALL AGES AND EXPERIENCES!

      It may very well save someone's life or prevent a serious, costly accident
