Petition Closed

The Amarillo Traffic Commission has researched studies that show talking on a cell phone while driving is just as bad as driving drunk. Drivers who use a cell phone while driving are four times more likely to be in a crash.

The Amarillo Police department is in favor of a hand-held cell phone ban.

Why is convenience for some more important than safety for the rest of us? It's time to tell the city commission to make our roads safe.
