I Guess The Lawmakers Aren’t Enough?
by Joseph Ratliff
Recently, a WA State law was passed making texting or using your cell phone as a driver while driving illegal…and a primary offense.
Heck, it was a secondary offense before that.
Yet, even after the public had spoken in this way, there remains the idiots who are still doing it anyway, thinking somehow they are immune to the consequences (and not just the legal ones).
We cannot drive or pay attention to the road as effectively while texting or talking on a cell phone (it’s been proven repeatedly), so these individuals are making a conscious decision to put their life, but more importantly, everyone else’s lives at serious risk for their selfish reasons. Are you kidding me?
Is that conversation or text chat so important that you cannot wait until you get out of the fucking car? Nope, never, not in any case. Not when human life is at stake.
It’s a shame we live in a society where people make conscious (unconscious?) decisions like this which can damage people’s life, property, or well being.
Sad. Really sad.
