As reported in the LA Times, New York is instituting “texting zones” where drivers can pull over to safely and legally respond to text messages. Signs will inform drivers about upcoming texting stops, so that they don’t feel inclined to put other drivers at risk. The state also increased fines and punishments for motorists caught using a cellular device for calls or texts.
We are big fans of designating texting zones and making the streets safer. Our chauffeurs make their living by driving around Los Angeles, so any measures taken to protect them and our passengers is greatly appreciated. We will see if California makes a similar change in the future.
If you are a notorious cell phone driver, you should contact us about getting a personal chauffeur. Our service will allow you to carry on business while riding between meetings without wasting any valuable time. Give us a call at 1-800-973-4171 for rates and booking inquiries.
