Councilwoman Gets Tough On Texting Drivers

....only after she has a close encounter with another driver.
Cantu said she decided to push for an ordinance after a recent near-miss in which she and her 18-year-old daughter were almost hit by an oncoming driver.
There's nothing like personal experience to give people perspective on things.  Anyhow, I have to commend the San Antonio councilwoman for pushing forward this ordinance.

Here in Laredo, the use of a cell phones is prohibited in school zones.  I guess we have to protect the kids; the rest of us can go to hell.  I kid, I kid.  

Police Chief William McManus wants to take it a little further than Ms. Cantu.  He wants drivers' full attention on the road.  He doesn't want people eating, reading, putting on makeup, sewing, changing clothes, building model airplanes, playing solitaire, learning guitar, etc, etc.

I think that's a good idea.  That kind of thing should be instituted here.  Of course, then I couldn't enjoy my McDonald's yogurt parfait on the run like I usually do.  But that's fine.  I'll do it for the people, 'cause that's the kind of guy I am.  You're welcome!!!
