Tennessee Passes "Texting While Driving Ban"
Texting while driving should be illegal, so Tennessee and Virginia have passed laws making it so. Leave it to the Bristol newspaper to cheer for another layer of laws. The problem I have with this is that, in Tennessee, we already have laws against distracted driving. Accordingly, texting while driving was already illegal. Rather than enforce the laws already on the books, our legislature would prefer some headlines. Here's an idea: How about enforcing the laws we already have before creating new ones? Texting while driving should be illegal. The fact is, it has been illegal since before texting was invented.
