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.

About Me

Name: Tekk Guy
Country: United States

About Me: I'm that tech guy…you know the one. When things are broken, I fix them. When they don't make sense, I explain them. When nothing is getting done, I do it. When a void occurs, I fill it. When there is silence on the call, I state the necessary. I'm that guy in IT that is relied upon by the competent as the nth tier of support, overlooked by management, and despised by the slackers. An InfoTech professional, aficionado of all things technological. I've been getting my geek on full-time since 1993, and have worked with information technology in some capacity since 1997 including VB 4-6, ASP, .Net, SQL, Java, HTML, ColdFusion, VBS, JS, Crystal Reports, COGNOS and more. I've worked on global scale environments for Fortune 500 companies and as a software engineer for local government agencies. My expertise is in Visual Basic currently in the .Net flavor, and focuses on user applications. I am also currently active in the ASP.Net programming arena, specializing in DotNetNuke Module development, site creation, and administration. Stated simply, if you need to get information from a-to-z, I'm the guy you want to see.
