Should Texting While Driving Be Prohibited?


Florida House Bill 13 would ban texting while driving and authorize law enforcement officers to stop motor vehicles and issue citations as a secondary offense to those who are texting while driving.

Studies show that texting while driving is as dangerous as driving while under the influence of alcohol. Opponents say the bill is too invasive into citizens' personal lives.

What do you think?

Absolutely, too much blatant disregard for responsibility, consideration, and even decency in society today! Friday, April 19, 2013|Report this


Yes! Yes! Yes! It is actually worse than drinking or drugging while driving. People are just not paying attention and cannot focus while texting and driving. Saturday, April 20, 2013|Report this
