  1. It’s important to note that this is ONE of the texting bans that was proposed on the House floor today. The bill that barely failed right before was a more comprehensive ban that called texting a secondary offense, whereas this bill that did pass is a first offense and the wording basically exempts any smartphone user (Line 8, Page 3 of HB 1195).

  2. so do these jackass legislatures know how its going to be enforced?
    everytime my phone lights up, im gonna get pulled over? even for using my GPS on my phone?
    a phone call comes in? my internet browser pops open cuz i touched it? this is a JOKE and yet another infringement on our lives.

    do some real work people!
