Put down the phone when you put it in drive.
Texting and driving becomes illegal in Florida Tuesday.
Critics say the law is too weak and difficult to enforce, since it's a secondary offense.
Brian Rick with the Florida Department of Transportation says that means you have to be pulled over for another reason to be nabbed for texting.
The ban allows you to text when you are stopped, in a traffic jam or reporting a crime.
The fine is 30-bucks for a first offense and law enforcment officers will not typically be able to confiscate your phone.
The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles data suggests more than 45-hundred accidents are caused by distracted drivers using electronic communication devices.
