I believe Massachusetts passed the "texting while driving ban" today. This is good news and the law is needed. I hope they put some teeth into the ban such as jail time.
No such luck. The law is a joke. I think it is a minimal fine of about $100 for the first offense,$200 for second, etc. and worst of all is NOT a surchargable moving violation like speeding or stop sign violation. That'll teach 'em!! Ya right.

Only teeth to it is that junior operators are banned from any cell phone use of any kind (talking or texting)while driving. Problem with that is the worst offenders I see on the road appear to be anywhere from 20-50something years old.

Looks like it got watered down in usual Beacon Hill fashion. Couldn't even get the mandatory headset clause put into the bill that so many states have so at least people will have 2 hands on the wheel while not paying attention.

It's their job, that's what they signed up for, no??
FYI, TFD is half paid half volunteer. Some of those emergency rescue workers were there on their own free will to help these two women. They are just better people for it when you sit at home with a beer in your hand watching days of our lives. Hope both of them a speedy and safe recovery.

They put up a speed trap right by the accident yesterday. Speed limits 35, I know that I drive in the low to mid 40's down that road till I get into Chelmsford... along with many other people for sure, I drive it daily.
& thanks to the 2 other fire departments and TFD that had to assist Tyngsboro for hours saving these womens lives.

iwish people could relize that the family is going though enough problems that they don't need people talking about the accident because nobody knows what happened not even the drivers. So leave these two girls alone and let them recover in peace.. Also if it wasn't for the Tyngsboro fire dept. great work these girls might not be here today. let's be thankful nobody died.
