  • Here’s a stat that readers may appreciate.
    Texting violations last year. As reported by Fox51 Orlando.
    From Florida’s Census of Texting Violations:
    Orange County – 114 citations
    Broward County – 18 citations
    University of Florida – 0 (yes, zero, as in NADA)

    Hmmmm. A bit peculiar/odd/out of the norm don’t you think? If CURRENT laws were enforced, maybe the deaths/accidents would not be occuring at the rate that is leading local leadership to impose more stringent regulations on a roadway that already has the proper speed limits on them. The real kicker is the students crying for change are according to my observations, the greatest violators of current texting laws.

    Once again, a couple liberals are looking to blame someone/something else instead of correcting the more probable issue. I guess they think if they close their eyes it will go away.
