New Research Shows Hands-free Voice Texting Just as Dangerous as Hand-held Texting

Confirms Passage of AB 313 (Frazier) is critical to reducing accidents, injuries and fatalities

Sacramento, CA - Findings from a just-released study conducted by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found that voice-texting is no safer than hand-held texting, stating that no matter which texting method is used, driver response times are significantly delayed - which impairs their ability to recognize safety-critical events like a car slamming on its brakes, a red light, or a pedestrian.

A bill by Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) to ban hands-free voice-texting passed the Assembly Transportation Committee last week and is set to be heard in the Assembly Appropriations Committee on May 1st.

Keep Up the Enthusiasm

There is a natural excitement that comes anytime one takes on a new project or starts a new job. It's a youthful sort of enthusiasm that can be contagious and which, unfortunately, often burns out after too many days, months or years on the project or job.

I don't see that happening with Solano County's newest legislative representative.

Assemblymember Frazier's Veteran Bill Approved in Committee

Sacramento, CA – Assembly Bill 287 by Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) was approved by the Assembly Veterans Affairs Committee yesterday.  The bill requires the California Department of Veterans Affairs to annually compile a list of eligible Vietnam Veterans to be added to the California Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

In 1983, Assemblymember Richard E. Floyd established the Vietnam Veterans Memorial on the grounds of the State Capitol in Sacramento to honor those who died during the Vietnam War. However, some veterans deserving of recognition on the memorial were not included at the time it was constructed. Some were inadvertently left off the original list, but many others died after returning from service as a direct result of injuries and illness resulting from their service in the Vietnam War.

Bill To Ban Hands-Free Texting While Driving Passes First Hurdle

AB 313 (Frazier) will significantly reduce traffic crashes, crash injuries and deaths

Sacramento, CA – A bill by Assemblymember Jim Frazier (D-Oakley) to ban voice-activated, hands-free texting, passed the Assembly Transportation Committee yesterday on a 9-5 vote.  AB 313 is an effort to rescind legislation approved last year that specifically allows hands-free texting while driving as a way to mitigate the ban on hand-held devices while operating a vehicle. However, research suggests that there is little or no difference in the crash risk of drivers using hands-held or voice operated devices because both contribute to the cognitive distraction that causes inattention blindness.

“Legislators respond to the latest information available,” Frazier said. “We know more than we did a year ago regarding distracted driving. It is our obligation to public safety to reverse legislation that was based on good intentions, but is now deemed dangerous. AB 313 will help minimize distracted driving by banning all texting while driving.  It’s just that simple.”
