Time for a more traditional-style blog post! Texting while driving is a very relevant subject for today's ramblings.
On the first of this month, a new law was passed in Florida making texting while driving a secondary offense. The law bans only manual texting while driving (so, you can still use voice-to-text, and technically you aren't "driving" when you're sitting at a stop light/sign or in traffic).
I am really curious to see how this law is enforced, if it makes much of a difference in helping prevent accidents, and if people choose to follow the law. I also wonder how officials plan to prove that the driver was actually texting when they were pulled over...will police officers take our phones? Is this going to become an issue of rights and privacy violation? What are your thoughts on the issue? Do you think we should/shouldn't have a law like this? Is it necessary?
I recently wrote two PSAs (one for TV and one for radio) for my Writing for the Electronic Media class (see below).
