If you read this blog regularly, you know that one of the biggest issues we see is car wrecks caused by texting while driving. As a result, we’re big advocates of doing what can be done to reduce those auto accidents.
During the last legislative session, a bill banning texting while driving was passed, but Governor Perry vetoed the bill, citing that it was micromanaging driver behavior (though the same could be said of speeding laws, DWI laws, and on and on).
During the session, I’ll try to post a few updates on the status of the legislation.
In the meantime, KUT had an excellent balanced story today on texting while driving. I urge you to take a minute to read it.
