North Carolina text news about passing of text messaging ban

Posted by lapearce on June 20, 2009

We all need a little humor every once and a while, so I hope everyone can appreciate the irony of a text messaging ban being communicated via text message. Now, the Governor Perdue’s aid was not driving when she texted the news, and I’m sure texting the news was done purposely to help the new law get some attention. I have to give the governor credit, because it worked.

The law goes into effect on December 1. North Carolina is now the 14th state to ban text messaging. From studies down both in Colorado and Texas it is obvious that most teens in this country text while they drive. In my opinion, texting is more dangerous than talking on the cell phone, which is said to be as dangerous as driving under the influence.
