Guest Post From Andy Pilgrim
I am a Florida registered voter and resident of Boca Raton. I am considered an expert in the field of driver education. I am also a professional race driver.
I was recently stunned to read, that certain Florida Legislators believe a law against Texting While Driving would be an unreasonable infringement of personal liberties to the texting drivers.
Every day in this country; texting drivers crash into other vehicles and grossly infringe on those innocent drivers personal liberties; by not allowing them to drive in safety.
Legislators; there are laws to stop a gun owner pointing their gun out of the window of a house, closing their eyes and pulling the trigger and I am sure you are ok with that particular infringement of personal liberties, because it makes perfect, reasonable sense. Are you seriously going to tell me that driving a 3,000 to 5,000lb vehicle at any speed on our roads with your eyes effectively closed (eyes down to text) is any different than irresponsible gun use? Of course not.
Law enforcers in 35 States are coming up with imaginative ways to enforce new anti-texting laws.
If any elected official continues to stop and entangle reasonable legislation on the texting while driving problem; then I hope each of you takes full responsibility for every texting driver in Florida, who will continue to text while driving, with complete immunity. It doesn’t really help to prosecute someone after the texting driver kills someone, now does it Legislators?
Sincerely, concerned road user
