WHAT: Rep. Rosemary M. Brown (R- Monroe/Pike) is calling for renewed dedication to statewide roadway safety and responsible driving practices after her Enhanced Driver Responsibility legislation, House Bill 37, was recently voted out of the House Transportation Committee.
As a parent and legislator, I have strived to continue shedding light on the importance of roadway safety, especially distracted driving, not only to my children but to all Pennsylvanians. One of the most common forms of distracted driving that we witness every day is the use of cellphones behind the wheel. I can’t tell you how many times I have been on the road and have seen drivers texting, talking or taking their picture while driving – it’s a daily occurrence. Not only does this act endanger the driver, but it endangers everyone around them.
