Despite the fact that Governor Perry vetoed a law that would make texting while driving illegal in Texas, such texting is terribly distracting and dangerous. It’s at least as bad as driviing while intoxicated.
Now there’s at least a partial solution to this problem, and it may be of interest to you if you have a teenager who texts while driving, or even if you have a hard time breaking that habit. A phone app from a company named MobileLutions will prevent you from texting if you are in a vehicle traveling more than seven miles per hour. There are more details of course, and you can read about them at the company’s Web site.
