Text at your own risk in Texas … Now Illegal as of Sept 1 – Safe wishes for those in front of Irma

The data is clear, texting is a distraction … heck even talking on the phone while driving can be dangerous.

Texting and Driving Made Illegalad0f7795-a9f1-44e7-9d5b-2faa36a0a4e3-1720-00000190cac62bcd

As of September 1, 2017, this bill made texting and driving illegal in the state of Texas.

While hard to enforce, it is a step in the correct direction. The penalties are not strict at this time, but a ticket is a ticket.

Washington was the first state to ban texting in driving in the year, 2007 YEP, 10 years earlier.

Currently there are 47 states that have made it illegal to text and drive. No idea.. Wow!

This is one of the reasons I love doing this blog for everyone, I had no idea that 46 states had already banned texting!

Best wishes to all of those who are in front of this sudden second major hurricane! After speaking at length yesterday to many in Florida … it’s going to be very tough no matter the outcome, be safe and best wishes. Our friends in Puerto Rico avoided the worst, we hope our Floridian family and friends do as well…

Have a good safe weekend for all and we will talk to you Monday!
