Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa supports Florida legislation banning texting while driving

(Miami, FL) - Since 2008, Miami-Dade County Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa has sponsored legislation advocating the ban on texting while driving in Florida. As the Florida legislature’s 2013 session begins this week, the chairwoman continues to urge the Miami-Dade delegation to support the bills banning texting while driving presented during the session.
