Texting illegal, unsafe for vehicle drivers
A cop, pulled over a good ole boy and inquired if he had any ID? “About What?” the good ole boy asked. (I’dy is Southern lingo for idea.)
Recently, I was driving down Hunt Road behind a truck going about 20 miles an hour. He would cross the center line and then swerve back to the shoulder of the road. We were in a no-passing zone. I had to follow the truck for miles because I could not find a safe pull-off to call 911.
I was telling my nephew, who is in law enforcement, about this drunk I followed. “He was probably texting,” my nephew explained. “We stop texting drivers every day.” Many texting drivers are having accidents and causing accidents.
If you are stopped for texting, you face a fine and possible loss of your driving license. Even worse, you can die or kill someone else.
I have an ideal or idy. All vehicles would have straight shifts and a clutch.
Then you wouldn’t have time to text. Law enforcement know what to look for, so look for the flashing lights in your rear-view mirror. Please don’t text and drive as the life you save could be your own or an innocent person.
