Summit on Distracted Driving
Okay, here's the deal. The Obama administration decided to convene a summit to discuss distracted driving, specifically from cell phone usage. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will announce his decision to gather senior transportation officials, safety advocates, law enforcement representatives, members of Congress and academics who study distracted driving at a news conference Tuesday. The summit will take place next month.
Now, basic driving law already states that driving while distracted is illegal. Why do law makers feel the need to waste more time and taxpayer money, to create more laws that basically state the same thing that is already in place. Texting while driving is obviously distracting, so it fall under the same law as driving while distracted. Done deal. I feel lawmakers are just trying to do something to make it look like they have something to do. But in my honest and humble opinion, this is superfluous. Just ticket the people that are found doing it, and be done with it.
