North Carolina becomes the latest state to ban texting while driving
It's almost inevitable and not stopping, but more states are passing laws banning texting while driving a vehicle. The amount of accidents blamed by this is becoming alarmingly prominent across the country. Governor Bev Perdue from North Carolina signed a law banning the act in the state – becoming the fourteenth to enact such a law. We've seen the number of states passing this law double in 2009 with more to come in the near future. Drivers need to consider the serious consequences of what can occur – and this new law will do just that. According to a Governors Highway Safety Association Executive Director, “There's a tremendous amount of interest in state legislatures and the highway safety community in the distracted driving issue. Regardless of the law, texting and driving should not mix. We need to restore some common sense to driving." So expect more states to join the list by the end of the year.
