SOUND OFF: Has the No Texting Law Made You Safer?
The Safe Driving Law took effect more than two years ago. Has it helped?
It has been more than two years since state legislators passed the Safe Driving Law in an attempt to cut down on the dangers caused by distracted driving.
One of the most talked-about sections of the bill, which took effect Sept. 30, 2010, was the monetary penalties attached to text messaging while driving. The first offense comes with a $100 fine; the second, $250, and the third or subsequent offenses, $500.
Stories of texting and driving continue to make headlines, however.
Do you think the Safe Driving Law has helped cut down on the number of distracted drivers? Do you text and drive? What penalties, if any, do you think should be attached to this type of action? Tell us in the comments.
