The Joint Committee on Transportation in Boston has approved a bill that bans the use of using a handheld device while driving. The Massachusetts House of Representatives will vote on the bill soon.
Good for them I say. Driving while texting is one dangerous move. As good and adept as I know we all think we are... Fact remains it is a hazard and distracts us from what is most important: Maintaining awareness and control of our vehicles!
Drivers will be fined $100 if they are caught using a device while driving. Fines go up each time they are caught. $250 for the second offence, and $500 for the third!
This trend on banning the use of handheld devices while driving is not going to stop. Look for a ban in your area in the near future :)
