Do not call!

9 December 2016

callatePRI deputy Fernando Moctezuma Pereda has proposed a change to the Federal penal code under which using a cellular phone while driving could be punished by up to five years in jail.  Moctezuma’s justification is that distracted drivers, specifically drivers using their cell phones, are one of the major culprits in the 12,000 traffic deaths nationwide this year.

Admitting the threat of imprisonment is meant to scare drivers out of using their cell phones while on the road, Moctezuma is also proposing a secondary bill that would penalize drivers who commit traffic infractions while drugged, drunk,  or using a cell phone.

Now, if they can just apply it to fools like this (a bigger hazard when I bike around town than the cars… at least cars whose drivers aren’t on their ·$%& cell phones), too:  dutch-cyclist-with-mobile-phone

    Better perhaps, would be allowing people to shoot those drivers with a cell phone firmly attached to an ear. Most noticeable among the youngish affluent “ladies who lunch” in Mazatlan.
