A group of motorcyclists all involved in separate distracted driving accidents are working towards stopping texting and driving in Texas. The group says they have well over 150 letters from the community backing their push for a city ordinance making cell phone use in the car hands-free.
Two weeks after a car hit Ned Maybee on his motorcycle, he and a group of local motorcyclists are working to ban cell phone use while driving. Maybee says the driver that hit him was on the phone, and now, distracted driving has changed his life forever.
In the midst of a battle among lawmakers over a bill to ban texting
while driving, a new report by the Texas A&M Transportation
Institute suggests that voice-to-text technology is no safer than typing
out a text message.
