Letter: DPS overstepping on text crackdown
11/20/2013 6:00:00 AM
So basically, the Arizona
Department of Public Safety
(DPS) is making their own law because they are mad that the state Legislature has repeatedly shot down such laws ["Arizona DPS promises crackdown on texting drivers," Nov. 12].
Is texting while driving really that much different from, say, operating the mobile data terminal inside a DPS cruiser? I highly doubt they pull over to run plates.
There are already laws against the various offenses people commit while driving with undue attention to the road: crossing lines, driving too fast or slow, blowing stop signs, etc. We do not need more laws or state troopers making up their own laws. Reapplying "unsafe speed" laws to texting while driving is manufacturing their own laws. We do not need any more laws ... period!
