Last night, the Parkland City Commission unanimously voted to make it illegal for text message while driving in the city. Fine will be $100.00. Parkland now becomes the first Broward County city to enact this law, but many cities will follow as text messaging has become so dangerous.
I wrote an earlier article, Banning Text Messaging While Driving In Parkland, referencing how over 66% of drivers between the ages of 16-24 text message while behind the wheel. With so many young drivers on our Parkland roads, it is imperative that residents become more aware of this growing problem! I applaud our city for being one of the first of many cities to enact this law to protect our neighbors.
