A Michigan State Senator has proposed legislation that would ban texting or playing video games while driving, reports ClickOn Detroit.
Sen. Buzz Thomas (D), the sponsor of the measure, said:
There is no need to be sending a text while driving your car, it’s one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. If it’s really that important, pull over and send your message, or just wait until you get to where you are going.
This is the second session in which I have introduced this bill, and hopefully we can all realize the urgency and just get this passed.
If the bill becomes law, violations would carry a $100 fine.
