Calling All Cars! Accident recorded on Holmberg Road & Just West of 441. Injuries Unknown … Cause Of Accident Texting While Driving!
According to a recent U.S. News & World Report article, 20% of people are sending text messages while driving. The percentages skyrocket to 66% in drivers between the ages 16-24. At least 16 states are considering legislation to ban text messaging while behind the wheel.
The City of Parkland’s Mayor Michael Udine, with the inspiration from: TTYL (Talk to you later) Inc., a group comprised of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School sophomores, is one step closer to enacting a law banning the use of cell phone text messaging while driving. The ordinance already passed on its first reading and will soon become law after a second discussion at the next City Commissions’s meeting schedule for October 7th. The fine could be from $100 to $250.
Let’s seriously put the cell phones down while driving. With many narrow streets in our city, all Parkland drivers need to stay focused on the roads. Or else, your teenager could be the next victim!
