Part 3
Part 4
Everyone is always on the go making the highways busier and busier every day. It's not how it was back in day where just changing the radio station was a big distraction now-a-days it’s all these new technically devices being produced which has made a major impact on society today. Texting while driving seems to be the most distraction for people behind the wheel that arrived to today's society. The state of Florida thought they might have an issue on their hands with distracted driving so, they did what 37 other states did. Of course there law is going to be different than others by stating in order to get an consequence for this offense you first must being making 2 offenses. By that meaning you have to make an secondary offense and it goes for all drivers that are texting while behind the wheel. Although there may be a law on distracted driving in the state of Florida, is it being enforce and has it even decreased the number of accidents that led to distracted driving? Dig deeper to find out!
In the year 2013 the state of Florida passed a law indicating that texting and driving is now banned. Even though this law was passed, this law states that in order to get in trouble for this offense you must have to commit 2 offenses, which raised questions for civilians with how effective this law really is. Some residents feared that other residents (mostly referring to teenagers and other young and reckless drivers), will not be open minded to this law. In addition this may lead to some residents living in fear of others breaking the law, resulting in an accident, and having innocent people lose their lives over a simple text message that could have waited. The problem is some locals want to create a more improved exceeding, and stronger law, which is understanding but Florida is doing the best they can do at the moment to help prevent texting and driving.
Florida is one out of 41 states that has added a law that officially declared that in there state it is prohibited to text while behind the wheel of a vehicle. Florida and 41 other states have taken action in improving their state, by prevailing in having fewer accidents in the state of Florida. Therefore, allowing this sunny sunshine state to have highways with drivers that will not cause harm to their surroundings. I agree with citizens wanting to have a much stronger law but Florida is also in the process of accomplishing this wish for residents. My feelings are mutual or much stronger in having this law or even having a much effective law. I personally think that officially declaring a law against texting and driving is much more exceptional then not having a law at all.

Does our state do enough to prevent distracted driving?
Part 1
Does our state help prevent us from distracted driving?
Final Product Part 5 !!
Choose one of the following questions to answer for the argument essay in this module:
Does our state do enough to prevent distracted driving?
or
Can a Public Service Announcement (PSA) help reduce the number of distracted driving incidents?
Then .....
Write the claim you will present in your argument essay.
Write the counterclaim that you will refute in your argument essay.
In this lesson we had a choice to choose between two questions; whether or not our state is doing anything to prevent distracted driving or if a public service announcement (PSA) helps reduce the number of distracted driving incidents. I choose the question: Does our state prevent distracted driving? My claim states that, the state of Florida does help prevent distracted driving by passing a law along with many other states. My counterclaim that I will be presenting in my essay would be; that even though Florida did pass this law this law states that technically you cannot get pulled over or a consequence for distracted driving unless you are making another offense.
