|You gotta admit, it's hands free.|
The other comment he made in reference to the pending ordinance was that he did not know yet what the fine will be. I suggest that they really think about this one. We have all read about how the city has been unable to collect on millions of dollars of old traffic fines. How are we going to collect new fines? One possible option would be to confiscate, yes confiscate one's cell/smart phone if you're caught texting while driving. I'm willing to bet that people will be tripping over themselves to get that smart phone back and will be glad to pay whatever fine is imposed.
I guess this law will result in a lot more people being stopped and ticketed for DWI, driving while informing. Although, sometimes you have to wonder what kind of information is so urgent that someone has to risk their lives and the lives of others in disseminating it.
