Coral Springs Police: An Important Message

Obey Traffic Laws

The Coral Springs Police strictly enforce traffic laws within the city. We remind all motorists to adhere to traffic laws, especially in and around school zones. Our Traffic Unit would like to provide a list of the most common traffic/pedestrian infractions they experience in school zones. With the start of the school year the Coral Springs Police Department will begin an informational campaign concerning the dangers of distracted driving.  Officers within the department will be distributing information flyers and palm cards informing our citizens of the current and future changes to the Florida State Statute relating to Distracted Driving. 

BEFORE YOU DECIDE TO REACH FOR YOUR CELLPHONE WHILE DRIVING, YOU SHOULD KNOW THE FOLLOWING:

Effective July 1, 2019, motorists may be stopped by a law enforcement officer for texting and driving while the car is in motion.

Effective October 1, 2019, cellphone devices can only be used in a hands-free manner when driving in designated school zones and active workzone areas in Florida.
