Comedy Defensive Driving initiates public survey to gauge public sentiment

“We care deeply about driving safety which is why we designed a defensive driving course online and in the classroom that was both informative and entertaining,” said a company representative

Comedy Defensive Driving, one of Texas’ leading and most convenient defensive driving schools, has established a public survey concerning recently filed legislation to ban texting while driving in the state of Texas. In 2011, Texas Governor Rick Perry vetoed a similar ban explaining that although texting while driving is “reckless and irresponsible,” the bill represented a “government effort to micromanage the behavior of adults.” Now, many Texas legislators have already drafted texting bans for the upcoming legislative session, stirring debate about the proper role of government in and out of defensive driving schools.

Texas is one of eleven states to not have a statewide ban on texting and the first state to have their governor veto such a bill. Advocates of the ban argue that government has a critical role in preserving public safety while opponents believe the government should not force adults to act responsibly. As a nationally distinguished provider of defensive driving class, Comedy Defensive Driving believes this debate needs to happen among the drivers, not just the legislators. “We care deeply about driving safety which is why we designed a defensive driving course online and in the classroom that was both informative and entertaining,” said a company representative. “Still, we understand the philosophical arguments on both sides and want to gauge what ordinary drivers believe.”
