LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas - Senator Philbert P. Washmeister [R-Hot Springs] has just met with the members of the news media and he has informed them about a very important piece of state legislation that has just been passed by the Arkansas State Senate.
Senator Washmeister stated that just within the past two years the incidence of road rage on Arkansas highways had more than tripled.
He pointed out that it is common knowledge that just about every resident of Arkansas carries some type of firearm in his car or truck.
The senator said that Arkansas motorists tend to drive about 6.7 miles per hour over the posted speed limit signs and when someone does not drive that fast the situation can get pretty darn ugly pretty darn quick.
He noted that road rage has become a state epidemic and it has already surpassed athlete's foot, dandruff, and teenage pregnancies.
Senator Washmeister is proud to announce that the decision to outlaw road rage was passed by an overwhelming vote of 27-8.
SIDENOTE: Arkansas' Road Rage Bill will go into effect on February 14, 2014, at 12:02 a.m. After that time anyone who is involved in a road rage incident will be arrested and placed in jail for a period of 12 to 18 days.
