Florida Texting and Driving Bill Fails Again
I actually expected this time that a bill pending before the Florida Legislature would pass, known as HB 33 and SB 90, but I was wrong.
The new bill would allow police to pull over drivers that were texting and driving, and while the bill passed quickly through the House and the Senate, it died in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Apparently, the Senate was concerned about issues of minorities being the victims of racial profiling. First time I hear that the Senate is so concerned with minorities.
