What's the point of a law if you never use it and if it doesn't have any clout? In a true fashion of 'we don't want to take away all of your rights because we're afraid, and we're trying to prevent dangerous activity', in other words hypocrisy, Arkansas has enacted distracted driving laws.
But they don't really apply to any particular situation. You can now get a ticket if you're using a cell phone but ONLY when driving near a school when children are present. (So a school on Saturday at 1AM is OK?) You also can't use your phone to talk or text when driving through highway work zones.
But this is a secondary offence meaning you can't be pulled over and cited just for talking on the phone! What' sthe point of the law if it never applies?!
Either don't have one, or just ban texting while driving outright. Lame. (Probably an attempt to get everyone used to a law and then BAM bring in the full blown version).
