texting corr Exceptions To Michigans Texting While Driving Ban

Michigan’s ban on texting while driving takes effect tomorrow… but there are exceptions. Read on for the list:

  • You can still text while stopped. Such as at a traffic light or in a parking lot. Not sure if that includes while sitting on the Zilwaukee Bridge on your way home from up north.
  • You can still text a report of a crime. Though if it’s that important and you’re in moving traffic, I’d think it’d be far easier to just call the cops.
  • You can still make and receive phone calls. Which begs the question.. What’s the difference? You’re still looking down to work itty-bitty buttons to dial the phone. Seems just as dangerous to me. You shouldn’t be on the phone, anyway. You should be listening to the radio and enjoying the free entertainment we work so hard* to bring to you.
  • You can work your dashboard-mounted GPS system.

    There you have it. No go forth and be safe.

    I think these ‘exceptions’ are stupid. If you REALLY have to text that badly, pull into a parking lot. No red lights, no reporting a crimes (I was totally unaware you could text 911 now), and if you need to make a call, seriously, save yourself the hassle of a potential accident and get a Bluetooth, or some other type of hands-free device… and the GPS, eh, okay, sure. Just BE SAFE for God’s sake!

    …and let me tell you, Don, we appreciate every single minute you put into it. And as for the beers, I can’t even begin to show the gratitude, I know that’s tough, but someone’s gotta do do it!
