Hot on the heels of the news that Governor Phil has signed the bill banning texting while driving in Tennessee, most of us are having some pretty mixed feelings. What about Twitter/How will we kick the habit/Is there a patch for this addiction/Can we get away with making grocery lists on our cell phones while we’re driving/Oh noes!/it’stheendoftheworld! From the bill’s full text:
“No driver shall operate a motor vehicle on any highway while using a hand held mobile telephone or hand held personal digital assistant to transmit or read a written message while such vehicle is in motion; provided, that a driver does not transmit or read a written message for the purpose of this subsection
(b) if such driver reads, selects, or enters a telephone number or name in a hand held mobile or a personal digital assistant for the purpose of making or receiving a telephone call.”
So vent on us. Vote in the poll, then drop us a comment with your thoughts on the bill. Because we know you’ve got ‘em.
