It's bad enough that we live in a nanny state . . . but now a nanny county?
Oneida County may ban texting while driving
I understand the intent here . . . and think that people who text while they drive should be thrown in jail and the key thrown away.
But WHY is Oneida County taking on this issue?
Here we sit in a county with the highest sales tax, among the highest property taxes, losing population and jobs like there is no tomorrow, with an oversized airport that is sucking us dry, with a sewage system spilling raw sewage into the river, etc., etc., etc. . . . . and they worry about passing a new law to forbid TEXTING?
Where is our legislature's sense of priorities? Let the State take this on.
