Council Nixes Texting Law

The city council decided not to adopt a texting ordinance for now.  The two main deciding factors were the difficulty of enforcement and duplicating laws - see prior post.  Even though they were deeply concerned about the insanity of texting while driving, they didn't want to simply make a political statement or create the illusion that they were doing something.

They also listened to the fact that 80% of our police officers were opposed to an ordinance that essentially duplicates the Inattentive Driving law already on the books.
