There Is A "Law", Now?

So, I am driving on the freeway and there are these electronic billboards that inform motorists about traffic conditions, Amber Alerts, closures, etc. You know, like in L.A. Story. Anyway, there is one now that says "DO NOT TEXT ON JAN 1".

Really? There is a law now. As if it was not common sense. You know, the state (California) just passed a law back in July that talking on the phone (without a hands free device) as a no-no. Now, they come up with no texting while driving.

Does there really need to be a law? Did we not all learn that one should have both eyes on the road and at least one hand on the steering wheel at all times?!? Why do you need to be that connected, even whilst driving? Put the phone down and drive. California driver are NOT good drivers. They are below average, at best. Me, I am Asian, so that already puts me at a disadvantage.

By the way, I see people on their mobile phones and driving all the time. These laws do nothing, in fact, there are still people still driving while intoxicated.

Be safe out there.
