Florida drivers may not be aware that per rules issued jointly by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, interstate operators of buses and semi-trucks, along with other drivers that transport certain amounts of hazardous substances, may not text or use cellphones while driving. If drivers violate these rules they could be subject to driver disqualification. They could also be fined as much as $2,750, and such a violation will have an effect on the driver's Safety Measurement System results. If a motor carrier requires drivers to text or use a handheld cellphone while operating their vehicles, they may be fined as much as $11,000.
