Texting and driving is a horrible combination. All too often it results in accidents, injuries, deaths and it’s considered an infraction punishable by fines. At least one member of the California Assembly doesn’t think the law goes far enough.
Assemblyman Jim Frazier from Oakley announced a bill this week that would add a point to your driver’s license for being caught on a cellphone. “The punishment for using a phone in violation of the law while driving is far too lenient” say Frazier and he wrote AB47 to address what he says is a void in the law. Currently the state cracks down on littering harder than those who drive while distracted with a cellphone. “It only takes an instant of distraction to kill yourself or someone else” and the Assemblyman knows what he’s talking about.
“The pain of losing a loved one is something I would never wish on anyone” and he followed that statement with the story of how his daughter was killed in a head on accident. Also speaking in support of AB47 was Erik Estrada who said “For me, it’s a very important thing, for I have a teenage daughter who drives all the time.”
