Who would of thought I might be applauding Sonny for his defense of freedom….
With regard to SB360, the texting while driving ban:
“I’ve got some concerns over the enforceability of that,” Perdue said at a news conference….
… the problematic area [of the bill] is the part that makes it illegal to “read any text based communication.”
Here is Perdue’s example to describe why enforcing that part could be an issue:
“If I get my e-mails and I pick up a smart-phone and read my e-mails, I’m violating the law. But if I print out my e-mails and I have a sheet of paper driving [and look at it], then I haven’t violated the law.
I didn’t know about about “text based communications” provision. I regularly check GA Navigator on my iPhone while driving. Apparently looking at the map is ok, but clicking on the icon for trouble to find out the problem is not ok.
Another stupid law, introduced by stupid legislators, and passed with a go-along to get-along mentality.
