Ban on Texting for Truckers why not everyone
Well, today started out with an unofficial announcement of a ban on on Texting for Truck Drivers and Bus Drivers. Why, just trucks and bus drivers? Truck drivers for the most part are the safest drivers out on the highway. Why not focus on more important things? I mean yea WHEN a truck has an accident it’s bad 90% of the time, somebody gets hurt or dies. But how many of those accidents have been proven its related to texting and driving?
Sounds like an easy way to get revenue. Some states will take advantage of this too, you mark my words. The Twitter and Facebook Police will be joining the force shortly. I wonder if they will look at social media, the way they look at Qualcomm? Will you have to match “tweets to logs” now? This new law is not fair by any means. The only way it would be is to impose it on ALL DRIVERS!
$2750.00 fine for texting? WOW! Tell me that is not a revenue scam. I just can’t see a cop pulling a truck driver over and writing a $2750.00 ticket for texting. Well, in some places yea I could see it happening. What’s next? If a cop sees you take your hands off the s
teering wheel, will you get a ticket? Texting and Driving is dangerous to do in my opinion, it would have to be very distracting.
Cops text and talk on cell phones all the time, I have seen them do it I know everybody has at one time or another. Why are they allowed to do it? I guess now in order to send and receive te
xt messages, truck drivers will have to pull onto the shoulder. Next we will have a bunch of accidents because of them having to pull back out onto the road, and going slow and someone in a four wheeler “texting” will hit them in the ass!
Come on Anne S. Ferro get wit
