Ok, we all get that and if you’re over a certain age, you couldn’t text and drive – even if you wanted to!
But how about this – and you’re paying for it! We taxpayers have been equipping the cars operated by our police people with every piece of computer paraphernalia that money will allow – Now think about this – instead of a dispatcher telling the officer where to go – they send them a typed message via their car computer telling them where to go.
You know what that means? Yep, they are driving, reading a computer screen and typing a response. Heck, that makes texting seem like kindergarten stuff.
All this while they are driving with you, me, and our children on the streets!
Oh for the days when we could just talk to each other! Pick up the radio mic and chat folks!
So, whats so wrong with a quick VERBAL q&a to get the officer where they need to go?
Law enforcement administrators – taxpayers want their cops to pay attention while they are on the road – Stop the typing AND texting!
