No Texting at the Wheel!

Keep your mind on your driving
Keep your hands on the wheel
Keep your sneaky eyes on the road ahead….
We’re having fun
sitting in the back seat
Kissin’ and a-huggin’ with Fred.

Well, minus the last three lines, Bay Area drivers need to remember that at the beginning of 2009, California drivers must comply with a new state law making it illegal to text message or respond to an email while driving. (I’m sure we all already know that drivers are required by law┬áto use hands-free devices when talking on their cell phones.)

This is good to keep in mind, as the very last thing you want to have happen to you is getting a ticket for texting as you weave through traffic at 3 a.m. Jan. 1 coming home from a night of riotous depravity.

    A nice surprise to see that you used the lyrics to my recording of “Seven Little Girls Sitting in the Back Seat” as a warning to not text and drive – or else! :-)
