EXECUTIVE ORDER: REDUCING TEXT MESSAGING WHILE DRIVING - October 5, 2009, 03:36 PM

On October 1, 2009, President Obama signed an Executive Order creating a Federal Government-wide prohibition on the use of text messaging while driving on official business or while using Government supplied equipment.

I'm ok with the hands free route. It's no different than having a conversation with a passenger.

But the texting shit is crazy. I've even caught myself doing it a few times and had to scold myself.

As long as the Feds don't make it a law for all citizens, I'm cool with it. (I just can't stand the 10th Amendment being overlooked.)

? In confused. You say its worse than drinking and driving but you dont think it should be a law? Im not basing you, Im just kind of confused.

Me personally..I think talking without a hands free and texting at all should be illegal. Especially within city limits. Bottom linie - people just dont pay attention at all when they do either. You can always tell when someones texting..They are drifiting all over the place. Or when they get into a heated or involved conversation. They just plain drive differently. Am I guilty of it - yeah. But Ive cut down to almost stopped.

Fucking laws for everything. Next is a law banning music while driving since it is distracting. THen a law bannign the color red.

How about a law saying FACK YO NEW LAWS THAT DO NOTHING TO IMPROVE OUR FAILING ECONOMY AND QUALITY OF LIFE IN THE US.

As much as I hate abuse of Federal powers, I bet they could pass it for all citizens. Phones are used for interstate communication, hence fall under the Feds. Besides, what they cannot pass directly, they blackmail the States to pass by withholding highway funds.

climate control systems should be locked out from adjustments until the vehicle has come to a complete stop

That's just what pisses me off. The Feds don't even have the legal right to levy the taxes that build the interstates. They take our money, waste a bunch, then give back what was left as "federal highway funding". BS!
However, you are spot on. It will be just like the drinking age thing all over again. DAMN THEM!!!
I wonder, will there soon be laws and punnishment for texting like there are for DUI?
