Why Just Teenagers?

It’s too bad the Georgia legislature made it against the law for only 16 and 17-year-old drivers to use their cell phones while driving.  It’s not a safe practice at any age.   I suppose the reason the legislature didn’t ban it for those over 17 is that anyone 18 and above can vote.

However, the lawmakers were brave enough to ban texting for everyone.  While kids seem to text all the time, it appears adults are quite addicted to it also.  I just saw a report on CNN about parents who are ignoring their children because they are so wrapped up with smart phone texting and emailing. The reporter said physical presence is not enough. You have to be there mentally for your kids too.

Both laws were necessary, but the one that bans driving while talking on a cell phone should not just be for teenagers.
