Text not, drive not

Gazette staff March 7th, 2012

Remember the simple days when jamming to “Hungry Like the Wolf” or mopping up a spilled Coke were the scariest distractions in a vehicle?

Thanks to smartphones, that list is now much longer. Drivers are texting, tweeting, emailing and taking time to kick ass on their latest Words with Friends move.

That’s why state Sen. Brian Crain is pushing legislation this session to prevent drivers under 18 from using any electronic devices while driving. Senate Bill 182 cleared that body’s Public Safety Committee last month and awaits a vote in the full Senate.
