Using a cell phone while driving is already a crime, called reckless driving.
There is no need to make another law. If someone is driving recklessly, and is
using their cell phone, they can get a ticket.Why make one more thing
illegal, when we should be doing the opposite. We know that making something
illegal doesn't stop it from happening. Using a cellphone is not a crime,
only when driving just won't work. It will generate revenue if that is what
you are after. Is that what you are after?
There is already a law on the books that punishes drivers that text. In fact if
a driver causes harm they could be facing a felony charge. In fact this law was
mentioned in 2009 by the New York Times.
If you live in Utah, you should know that our legislature has much more
important things to do that write laws that will protect people.There are all sorts of wild message bills that need to be passed that are
much, much more important and a flock of special interests that need attention.
