The governor signed into law a new anti-texting measure that now makes texting while driving a primary offense. This means a driver can be pulled over and cited just for texting. With the old (secondary) law the driver would have had to commit some other violation before being cited. Also, the penalty now includes three points on the driving record.
Theater goers watch a film about driving, but have their cell phones activated remotely by the theater mgmt. While looking at their cell phones, the car in the film crashes. But they never saw it. Lesson: Taking your eyes off the road even momentarily can lead to a crash!
Testing and driving is more dangerous than drinking and driving. Some disturbing statistics show more than 3,000 teens die each year in crashes caused by texting while driving compared with approximately 2,700 teens killed in drunk driving accidents.
The car making the right-on-red got a ticket for not making a full stop, as required by law. A rolling stop or just slowing down is NOT a full stop. Also notice the pedestrians that wouldn't cross until the offending driver made the turn. You cannot make a right-on-red if vehicular OR pedestrian traffic is in sight.
A permit holder who thought he knew how to drive (don't they all?) killed 3 of his friends. The mother of one of the victims in inconsolable. This is the aftermath of dangerous and illegal driving. Yet, the DA is testing for drugs since sober drivers are rarely charged with any wrongdoing. Shame!
