-- -- Hello how pain readings welcome sound. Mixed Wednesday church tonight alone the feel as we get underway without the free. Crush hour. 5 o'clock -- is. Always your input into the money -- show invited encourage and welcome WM line for your. -- advantage on line members Greeneville to 3 -- WORD. Spartanburg. 57 forward WOR in my tracks the line number is 71307. Sheriff here those were coming up here and my email address is a -- on word at Yahoo!. So they have the bulk of the conversation on this afternoon wind. Frank it was a -- -- earlier in the program was gonna complain about some of the commercial content and is now that the the majority of the conversation is centered around an email and I got today from -- weaker. -- is the what in the military would be -- PI album public information officer that is. The city official that's responsible for dealing with the media right -- also handles marketing. For the city she sent an email out earlier today city to hold public hearing on proposed distracted driving ban. Here's what assess. After several months of research and discussion and a committee. Comprised of City Council members the city manager members of the police department and the city attorney's office and others. Has proposed a ban. On the use of cell phones and other hand held devices for texting talking. Emailing viewing web sites etc. while driving within the city limits of Greeneville. They proposed ban includes exceptions. For emergencies and first responders. It also permits devices to be used if they can be done so hands free. Which would enable most drivers to use the GPS function of their device while driving. The proposed ban includes a graduated penalty system. A first offense would carry a maximum penalty of a hundred dollars. Doesn't say with them if there's a minute penalty. A second offense would carry a maximum penalty 200 -- third -- would carry a maximum penalty of right 300 bucks and the potential. For the court to seize the offenders device. If it's the governor the city starts re acquisition and business seizing. These the cell phones and a turnaround a reseller gazelle right. They got a nice -- get 150 -- -- box off the gazelle. Well we got to find new sources of revenue at times are tough. Prior to moving forward the email continues City Council seeking input. From anyone who lives works or attends school in the city. As well as those who visit the city for shopping dining recreation and entertainment. Or to conduct business. In other words anyone. I think public hearings citizens will have an opportunity to voice their opinion on the proposed ban. Before taking any formal action City Council will review and -- They input received. If -- proposed ordinance. Into going to City Council the public will have two additional opportunities to provide. Input. And the first and second readings. Now there's there's been a lot of discussion. About this through the course of the afternoon those in opposition to it. Raise a couple of questions number one is is just another. Fundraising thing and other. -- there essentially -- tax another another way with a regulation for the city to raise more money. And is it merely an extension. Of the tentacles of municipal government into. More and more aspects of our daily lives there are those objections and then there are those on the other sizing up. And I see these people all the time I drive around all over the place people we've been all over the road they're texting or talking on the cell phone they are distracted. They're not paying attention to what's going on. And their needs to be something done about it. So part of the question is it is -- something that needs to be done. A new piece of legislation. Bob this text message in at 71 threes -- seven Bob us truck drivers. Our finds toward 150 dollars for first defense just for using a handset. Instead of hands free talking. So. Oh millions and knowing what would you and where you come down on TV I think it's a good idea. Bad idea. Think it is a problem that this is not a solution you tell me. -- 232 WORD Spartanburg 574 W a RD starting in this hour with Keith. There was neither one he's in beautiful -- -- -- I'm good I'm good thank you. Well. That what they don't do about the people who who make deliveries for a living because there all the time they all the time have to. It you don't GPS. Or. Look at -- -- or -- customers or especially in the big delivery business. Well that's a good question because according to the language in this email. It says it would be a ban on the use of cell phones and other hand held devices. So you know if but if you're saying UPS or FedEx driver. And you got to -- laid out. And your -- following it on a hand held computerized device does that fall. Under these and if so what these guys gonna do they have to print out another -- daily route before they they go so they -- -- -- better. But that that's something else I mean there's no there's no ban on reading a newspaper while driving what they're doing that and reading a text. Nine and also. Minimum wage -- they deliver for restaurants big mistakes whatever. They're not that they're gonna. Go and straight but the -- of the cost you -- -- -- -- minimum -- you -- that it -- bravely -- Say it but you've got to play on about some sort. You're you're touching on something here -- that I think is going to be an important aspect of this and that is. The unintended consequences because every time we get a new law there are always. Unintended consequences that -- nobody thought on the forehand and then have to be dealt with later or not and and present problems for the people. That are some subject to the law. What can I ask a quick question to the bus that was out there. If you're going side by side of the road and -- only two Goodyear or have you whatever. What -- you not get over at lap cars to patch you wish you use. Forcibly stateside about such cynical and cycle. Because I think that that people are is individual and different. Amongst bikers as they are everyplace else by that I mean. There're a lot of bikers that when I come up behind him in and they're in a situation like you describe they will do that and we'll get over and there are others. That there I guess you my column vigilantes you know well I think. Aside from -- go to the -- motto share of the -- should work by the -- We're only stimulate rhetoric yeah. That's exactly right that's brilliant -- thank you Keith appreciate because you know there are some like is that I got as much right to be years. So. -- 14 after 5 o'clock let's let's head to Greenville next and that's weekly jobs here in the monument Joseph hi Josh and what say you. I'm good thank you -- there. I know about that last already don't talk about -- and you'd be just the way regardless. Copies of bombs. Didn't actually have -- -- in January last year federal mandate that our driver so are commercially forever and not beyond my ankle -- I -- that -- -- -- -- -- -- daughter that must be a reference to the other text message that I got in now the last few minutes. You're here remember Yasser there was a 2150. Dollar fine for the first offense up for using a handset instead of answering. Yeah exactly everybody has their outlook to horror you know they -- -- our -- and urged Europe very UPS or substandard or not or standards and I can't expect injured. Up our. So little and it's not a court martial truck drivers got hurt -- -- go into that swore under that take. Gotcha yeah so so that would be an unattended unintended consequence they would have to worry about. I gotcha thanks Josh appreciate the information. Ask some of the text messages. In on this I'm -- Mac all flown driving. Will be graded the Department of Education more regularly. Think they're very worthwhile to watch. As this would simply says that collateral damage. -- -- This and just don't -- down. Bob did you know that murder is also against the long who's gonna enforce this new regulation of the comes to pass. It is such a problem why don't police officers ticket drivers for reckless driving. The police can't deal with a laws on the books already. I say it's a power and MoneyGram by the city from Phil and Simpson. That was one of the first questions that came to my mind. About this proposed piece of legislation. How in the heck can they you know enforce. I mean it -- let's let's just say that your riding going you've got the -- got an iPad on the seat next day. And your behalf text messages on their new glanced down at it every so often how they know what you're looking. All I hear is here's a text message that came into about does something we've been talking about the last couple days a Bob. I just wanted to let you know that some friends of mine and I went to the tent city yesterday and downtown Greenville. And donated to the homeless folks there was a wonderful experience we get to see what really happens when community and church comes together and takes care of their own people. -- on a couple of nights ago donated each and every two and a propane heater with extra propane something. They said that they they do need and -- five gallon plastic buckets that you can get at Lowe's or Home Depot police electric collars now okay. Five gallon plastic buckets that. Bob is it okay for police officers to drive and -- -- laptops in their cars. -- let me go back and then find that that part of the proposed legislation. The proposed ban includes exceptions for emergencies. And first responders. So what's the definition of first responders are we shy about firemen and we tell him that EMTs were -- about police officers what do we don't. -- another text message simply says overreach of government. And and that's when banning texting while driving. I would be would suffice it's dangerous. For anything more than that any anything more than that sounds like overreach to make. -- -- Yep and that's that's the extent of the current text message thanks rulers back to the phones we go let's bring in Sherri was in -- hi Sherry and welcome the Willie Mac show. And that. Election could and maybe everybody else out there. And can chime in on yeah or -- -- I. Every time -- -- -- -- I'd share it anybody. And the city limit that amp L and Eric are out of there are there on the bank that. Out are a credit ticket and belt. Good question and that comes back again. To this a line in here which says the proposed ban includes exceptions for emergencies and first responders so. Are the police exempt. From -- I'm sorry they're just drive up the street you do it started out our techno Americans. It that that. Which I tell us about it -- not now at very rarely. Except -- right now. -- -- -- did it hit it a little. -- -- -- and you. That car that you are on the. And so here's here's another aspect of this that it that it touches on -- and not. You went to the heart of an and that is. You know is there one off for them and another offer -- as we see so much -- -- -- look at obamacare. And all the other no legislative hours that are exempt from -- are getting subsidies shorten all the rescues is once -- laws. -- they -- for themselves and another set of laws for us Reeves out here. -- you don't want to get -- I don't ask. Hey it doesn't affect me and I'll not units are my health care dead but it does it might view. Middle class -- I'm working quite -- thirty year old daughter's. Yeah exactly the people that they want -- into obamacare well they -- -- Or not right. Well and and Wendy you know I talked yesterday and they were -- all over Fox News today when he got a health care plan at Wal-Mart. Can building cost 13 of what Obama care costs with the subsidy why in the world would you sum it up for obamacare. Well and that's the saying is you know bless her heart Cedar -- kids that. We break them to be independent they don't polyps are not very. Nice one Mary -- it's. Yeah we're very lucky and they that work hard and full time job. But and they -- their war does offer them health care yeah that at a cost of almost 300 dollars a month. Premiums -- and went and going up. Right and -- when you you're that age and you're starting out and your living paycheck to paycheck here in the world can afford that you know when you're now and there. As I say when you're eating Rama noodles every night is to come up with a three -- bugs and -- yeah. Bear -- way to handle it helped area. They get sick one acute street I'm the year maybe they go to the doctor that respect for. Right yeah because -- and it's money you know if you go to the doctor and -- how much is and if I just pay for myself.

Remind you that video clips and did this well and it and -- loans. Carried it work out so -- player. That's a good question how much how did it work out over the. I ever heard. I -- abandoned many years not yet. Had a role that -- Yes no you're right I've mind I had forgotten that -- Clinton did that what it was more than a year ago I guess right. To be out. -- -- it would be interesting just to hear from somebody over there and see what idea what the the effects of implementation of that have been out there.

Right because because that's an excellent yeah that action is going to be a consequence only. To the individual who's committed -- That's exactly right. That you think we could maybe get social legislators should look at this comment Serbs. And there's a leap. Up and I thought I I mean you don't have to be a college graduates at the shop yeah. We now I don't know -- you're Shannon as -- as I like to jokingly say you don't have to it's not. Rocket surgery or brain science. We're going to Alaska and that is what you know. Our culture today about cheap and -- an -- or alert and it was because I started out by its own. Language. But not nobody suffered and think about yeah. That's an amazing statistic -- -- right that went down John I don't even though even though you have been guilty. Of emitting fine particulate matter into the atmosphere and destroying the ozone layer and everything else around here. And I'll read it to John thank you very much for the call. In on the attacks line. A body Mac about the the tent city people watch the Andy Griffith -- -- episode about Robin Hood. That's how most of the tent city people probably are they like me taking care of by others. I'm Bobby -- speaking of texting while driving what about the police officers using their in car computers while driving -- hurt personally witnessed. Police officers. Using their computers while driving and in one instance. The officer had -- locked down. -- his brakes to prevent -- from slamming into the car in front of the men around wide because of using his computer while you're striving mrs. This to me is just as dangerous as texting while driving. Whatever happened to upsetting example well and India. In an email that I got from the city today. It does specifically say the proposed ban includes. Exceptions for emergencies and first responders. And as you heard Bruce the about collar couple minutes ago say first responders -- -- fire department EMS and the police department. Back to the phones realist bring in China can -- Hillary -- a cross the order in the tar heel state in the great town of Henderson hill hi Henry and welcome to program. 08 or above -- out like that they're loud let's break out the Bermuda shorts. Only got that era the other day. Well -- they're just my first point and that. On the hit that early but -- in new you don't. On -- culture driving pocket on the so a lot of what you're typing on the computer -- the other -- driving on the street yeah steering with the needs you know. I think they need -- certain example -- goes for speeding and nobody traffic signals to a movie turn signal Malek and you know you're you're. Somebody sent me a text message about that a few minutes yards and haven't although police officer and -- see you running red lights you know that they can't all be on the way to the scene of murder. Violation model for us to -- -- or supposed to be you know. Exhibit you with the other thing that other but the -- calling that offer complimentary use so. Apartment -- The complaint department is closed for the day but the -- department is always open and. Well. Yeah a little ball like I -- often here so I -- -- -- but. I used to listen -- station much more than I do. I still listen you just as much right don't looking at nearly at all and in the morning anymore because. The morning coach since the voice of reason left and got her own show seemed to be. Some more of a bigger curmudgeon every day. And that bothers me because it gets to the point where every. News story every social -- everything becomes. Have to be you know some out. You could be used against the people that like politically or whatever you know that they can never do anything right in and let. And I don't get that from you so I appreciate that. Went to let the -- and in the afternoon because. I like it more balanced approach that certainly liked the conservative side in. It's a balanced approach you know. Well you know -- I would. Get out and and I appreciate I appreciate the comment I'm I've I've said on numerous occasions that. When they asked me to begin doing the program because when I first started. I was I was actually hired as the -- program director. And then window when Ralph Bristol -- together in Nashville I started doing a show filling -- and that the boys on mahogany row you know the guys through the 2000 dollar -- that decided that I should keep doing -- -- And I said at the time and and and tried to maintain it since then that -- drill hole conceptually when I was trying to do is they generate more. More light than heat and and I hope we continue to do that. Sure that's like have a reason discussion with somebody disagrees with the rather than just shouting themselves. Exactly right yeah I don't think I don't think. I don't think that is lighting a candle to. Drive away the darkness. Well that's a friend once told me in and the struggle within the bit he says you know -- -- when you're the one talking all the time you're not learning anything. When I screw up again and an excellent point I appreciate the call him everything -- -- enough stay warm out there and Henderson. 552 it's eight minutes now before six -- the afternoon commuters on any robards is keeping an eagle -- on it for science.
