It Becomes A Law On Monday~No Texting While Driving In Huntsville & Madison, AL

It finally becomes law on Monday. I wrote a Blog in July when this bill was passed...and now we are here. Madison, Alabama has also adopted this law as well. Both ordinances make it a crime for city drivers to use a wireless communication device to "send, receive, download or view" electronic or digital content. This means no sending text messages, no reading e-mail, no scrolling through music files, no peeking at YouTube. Programming a destination into a satellite navigation unit while driving is also prohibited

The crazy thing is...drivers are still allowed to talk on cell phones. I know that as a real estate agent I pretty much live on the cell phone, GPS, etc. I have made it a priority to not talk on the phone while driving. It is so hard to not look down when I see I got an e-mail, text, etc., but I don't want to be one of those people I see driving and absolutely not paying attention to the road. They are stradling the lanes, going either 15mph too slow (or fast), zipping in and out of traffic...the list goes on and on. As much as I hate it, I have to admit that I wish they would have banned talking while driving too.

So, all of you that are traveling through Huntsville and Madison, AL starting Monday, PAY ATTENTION!
