I have heard and read so much lately regarding the age limits for cell phone users while driving. Well, let me tell you, if you would just watch what you would see is the people on cell phones while driving are not our 16-17 year olds; it’s grown adults.
I periodically drive through several school zones and it’s not the kids talking on cell phones. It’s usually grown adults in a high priced vehicles. These are also the ones that are not slowing down to the posted school zone speed limit.
Just like so many other issues we have today, what we need is someone to pull these folks over and give tickets. I think if tickets were given this would cut down on a lot of distracted driving. The age of the driver should not matter and the officers should not turn an eye away from the high dollar cars.
I urge you to set up patrol officers in various school zones on Hixson Pike and have officers give the tickets while others point out the drivers. I would bet from DuPont Elementary School to GPS there would be a lot of tickets given and it would be interesting to know the age of the driver and probably the automobile they are driving. This may show everyone who is really breaking the law.
