Emily Salvette, chair of the Michigan LP, writes in the Detroit Free Press in opposition to the new Michigan law banning all texting while driving:
Will this law increase public safety? Probably not. It is intended to deter distracted driving that is reckless. But reckless driving is already illegal. Police can already issue tickets to motorists whose distracted driving poses a clear danger to others.
The Libertarian Party is America's third largest political party, founded in 1971. Our vision is for a world in which all individuals can freely exercise the natural right of sole dominion over their own lives, liberty and property by building a political party that elects Libertarians to public office, and moving public policy in a libertarian direction.
