edmo: So the point is? They refused to respond or what?People call 911 as they head into burning buildings - not safe. So?
CruJones: Or it could be Siri, and I think my truck can even send texts via voice, though I've yet to need to set it up.Or it could be an idiot texting while driving. It's worse than drunk driving.

It's worse than drunk driving.This. If you injure or kill somebody while playing with your toys instead of driving your dang car it should be the same as OVI.
MelGoesOnTour: I don't think this law was thought through very well.
I used to work in 911 as a systems admin. I actually setup the application for text to 911 and people have actually been texting 911 for a long time, they just didn't go anywhere. When we set it up, we got a flood of texts sent to 911 that had just sat. Things like "I am stuck in the trunk of my car and my ex is going to kill me, please help!".
There were also a lot that gave addresses where people were selling drugs.
Good to see they are starting to go somewhere now.
GBB: MelGoesOnTour: I don't think this law was thought through very well.WELCOME TO THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF 911 !!!!Seriously, go visit your local comm center. You'll want to move to a different jurisdiction when you realize what really happens in public safety only to realize that it's the same E-V-E-R-Y-W-H-E-R-E.
