We have a cellphone that we use periodically and never when driving, but I felt I needed to write about the ordinance that was recently passed by Havre City Council about using a cellphone while driving or texting while driving. I agree this is a distraction, but what about eating while driving, messing with your radio, picking up something off the floor, hollering at your kids, etc.? Aren't these distractions too?
The penalty for getting caught using a cellphone while driving is ridiculous. A person who gets a DUI gets a smaller fine and sentence than a person using a cellphone. This is wrong. A lot more thought needed to be put into this ordinance which is completely out of line for a town the size of Havre.
