NYC legislature and the anti-texting law

AAA’s Car & Travel Mag’s Nov-Jan issue ran a column “Albany AWOL On Texting”. It detailed how the NYS legislature failed to give the anti-texting law any teeth and asked why Albany doesn’t get it? One reader commented in the January 2011 issue: “The only logical answer would seem to be that the majority of these legislators like to text while driving. What other explanation is there? Unless they’re all idiots.”
