Driving While Distracted
A Florida retiree has had enough of distracted drivers who text while driving their vehicles at 70 mph and more on Interstate 95.
“I think that a law should be passed that it is a major offense for any phone or texting to be done while driving,” said the man who does not believe motorists should so much as munch a sandwich behind the wheel.
Driving while distracted is a growing problem in Florida and throughout the rest of the country as some drivers answer cell phones and text messages instead of concentrating on driving their vehicles safely. The Obama administration recently banned federal employees from texting and driving. Members of Congress have said that law enforcement officials and the American public must team up to discourage distracted driving for everyone’s safety.
