New California Laws  
California is also adding some laws. As of Jan 1:
  • Texting while driving is illegal. - all I can say is if you my friends have tried to text while driving... ARE YOU NUTS? I mean I try not to talk on my cell but I don't even feel it distracts me that much but there is no way that you can text while driving.
  • If you've been convicted of a DUI you can't have BAL of .01% ever (I think). Seems a little harsh but I feel that if you've not had the forethought not to drink and drive then you get what you deserve. I know people say they didn't think they were drunk but I figure if you've had an alcoholic bev less than 3 hours before you are going to drive you are in trouble. The whole point of designated drivers.
  • Banks will be responsible for pets left in foreclosed homes. -*shakes head* Why aren't the owners responsible? You have a pet it is your responsiblity! To abandon a poor dog in a house where it will starved should be illegal because it is cruel.
  • Cyber bullys can be suspended or expelled if a school learns of a student participating. GOOD! Why cyber bully when you can make all kinds of friends. I just don't understand the concept of cyber bullying.
The news upsets me sometimes. I shouldn't watch it because I tend to get angry. It amazes me at the mentality of people and the things they will do!

re: Texting while driving is illegal.

Certainly it's friggin' ridiculous to try and text while actively driving, but that law also says you also can't do it if you are stopped at light or stop sign. That's a tad extreme... at least they wouldn't be moving!

I rarely talk on my cell while driving, but I'd never be able to text and drive. lol

I'm with you on these issues.

Like a person with a DUI is never gonna have a .01 BAL... hello, they are a drinker. lol

See I get the not texting while at stop light because I don't think I've ever texted that fast before.

Me either. How can you look at your phone while driving?

I know! It is just a good way to get them off the street. My sister was all concerned that they might be on cold medicine but my theory is they should have gotten in trouble the first time. I'm not into letting them continue driving.
