No Texting Law

The ban on texting is nothing but another way for the state to tax us residents. The following quote is taken directly from the new law: "No drivers license points or insurance surcharge shall be assessed as a result of a violation of this section. Failure to comply with the provisions of this section shall not constitute negligence per se or contributory negligence per se by the operator in any action for the recovery of damages arising out of the operation, ownership, or maintenance of a vehicle." No license points will be assessed for violating the law and a violation of this law cannot be considered as grounds to recover any damages you might incur resulting from an accident caused by someone texting while driving. This is a flat out money grab by our politicians. If our so-called leaders were actually concerned about our safety, this law would have some actual teeth. Before I get jumped for supporting more laws, let me make one thing clear. I believe that is absolutely ludicrous that our legislators feel it is their responsibility to treat us like 3 year olds by regulating every aspect of our lives. That belief, however, has no bearing on my opinion of this law.
