Back when word came last year that there would be another bill filed in the Florida Senate to ban texting while driving we wondered why MSMing was being singled out when technology allows us about a million and one ways to distract ourselves while we should be keeping our eyes on the road.
If we're updating our Twitter status while driving, does that count? What about checking our email? Playing a game of solitaire? Can we take pictures on our camera phones as long as we don't immediately text them to someone?... How about we just ban everything but driving while driving?
Well, South Florida Rep. Ellyn Bogdanoff (R-Fort Lauderdale) killed the bill today for that reason.
