Mother informed me today we have the safest public transport in that sense in our state. Why? because about 2 years ago a someone had a train accident due to the train driver texting behind the... whatever they use in trains. If you are seen with a cell phone as someone driving one of the public transporters (buses, trains etc) you get fired. Doesn't matter if it's your phone, if it's off, if you are on break. Fired on the first offense. Good job MA for doing SOMETHING right. Now raise the penalty for drivers up to drunk driving offenses.A step in the right direction regarding phone use while driving:
Pennsylvania Senate votes to make texting behind the wheel a primary offense.
Still needs House and Governor approval, and it leaves talking behind the wheel as a secondary offence, but given the state's budget woes and the sheer number of idiots on the road with phones now, I can definitely get behind this.
