During the 2019 Regular Session, the Florida Legislature enacted section 316.306, Florida Statutes. Section 316.306 prohibits individuals from using wireless, handheld communication devices while operating motor vehicles in certain designated areas. Any person who violates this section commits a noncriminal traffic infraction, punishable as a moving violation, and shall have three points assessed against his or her driver license. However, in lieu of this penalty, a first offender under this section may elect to participate in a wireless communications device driving safety program approved by the Department. New rules are necessary to establish standards for program approval and administration. Therefore, the Department proposes to create a new rule chapter to establish standards for approval and administration of wireless communication device driving safety programs.
