In a statement, Perry explained that it was already illegal for people under 18 to text while driving but the Bill "is a government effort to micromanage the behavior of adults."
Texting while driving is illegal in virtually every state bot not Texas. 25 people died in a train crash in the Lon Angeles area in September 2008 because the engineer missed a red light while texting. I hope the first fatality caused by a driver texting in Texas will see Perry himself being sued.
Perry is actually quite comfortable micromanaging adults lives. He supports the Teas law against sodomy. Now that's what I call micromanaging and that doesn't endanger people's lives.
