Meadowlakes to tackle texting at the wheel
October 09, 2012, 6:00 pm by Adam Troxtell
The City of Meadowlakes could move to crack down on texting while driving after council members and the mayor expressed their desire to do so.
Mayor Don Williams was open to any potential city ordinance
on the issue after hearing a resident’s account of how he witnessed a golfer
almost get hit by a car while crossing the road. The driver of the vehicle was
texting at the wheel. Council member Franzella Jones also said she would like to see an ordinance in place.
"We can make an ordinance against texting while driving, and there may be some national or state programs we may get involved in,” Williams said.
Williams is concerned about residents of Meadowlakes who walk on the streets for exercise, because there are few sidewalks in the city.
