An article on Latino Fox News.com by Antonio Tijerino, a member of County Executive Isiah Leggett’s Latin American Advisory Group, highlighted the dangers of texting and driving. Tijerino discusses some of his personal experiences about the dangers of those who text while driving.

Tijerino states that the public would not tolerate seeing a truck driver, minivan mom or teen driving down the road swigging from a liquor bottle of booze, and we shouldn’t tolerate them driving while texting. The full article is available online.
