School zones:rated 10
In Texas officers make sure the school
zone signs are flashing while children are present.Officers sit and watch drivers, if the driver is suspected of texting they are pulled over. Tashika Varma in the article"Texting and driving ban could become state law in Texas" says"In the fall of 2010,an SMU student was driving when she struck another SMU student who was walking to the library.According to The Daily Campus,the student admitted to looking at her cellphone while driving when she heard a crashing sound. The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) says texting while driving is SIX TIMES more DANGEROUS compared to driving while INTOXICATED.
