Please stop the nonsense!! There are allot more pressing problems going on!!! And your talking about handing tickets out for looking at flowers. I'm not saying its a dumb bill...  It's just not the type of thing that we as Texans are thinking about... We are thinking about Jobs, Education, Businesses, the Economy...  And thats just the tip of the ice burg...  When someone in government proposes something like this, we start to think... what are you lot doing, in Austin...  Do your Job, or take yourself home... Cause what is the point of you being there... ???  I just wish one of you guys/gals in Office would actually show us what you do...  I mean what do I pay taxes for? Am I getting my bang for my buck??  Or is it getting wasted, again...

I am saying it is a dumb bill. I must have been confused - I heard the Republican party elected officials were for smaller less intrusive government. Instead let's intrude more and make it illegal to pull off to the side of the road. Let's make it illegal to be safe when your about to fall asleep at the wheel on that long stretch of 114 between Guthrie and Dickens, and need to pull over to stretch your legs. No, we can only do that at the officially sanctioned "rest stops" hundreds of miles apart.

This is a ridiculous bill.
