Texting while driving could cost you $30

Link to PNJ.com article on Florida proposing a $30 find for texting while driving.

Thirty Dollars!?!?! Are you kidding me? Texting while driving could cost you your life, your savings, your business, or more. I don’t think $30 will deter many people from texting while driving. I don’t think this will be effective. If the legislature is serious about this issue, they need to send a clear, strong message.

For you business owners, you need to protect your businesses from the consequences of your employees and contractors driving while distracted – texting and more.

Toyota Halts Sales of 8 Models in U.S. for Pedal Flaw

Toyota has a very expensive situation on their hands.  Read about it here.

What in Toyota’s process allowed this to happen?

Good problem solving will identify the root cause of this problem.  Hopefully, Toyota will use good problem solving processes to identify the cause.

Identifying the cause does not eliminate it.  Toyota faces huge expenses to correct the problem in existing cars, production delays, and regaining the public’s trust.  Dealers will take a big hit too.

When making changes, especially changes to critical components and parts of your business, you should spend time to consider what can go wrong, the causes, and how to reduce the probability of failure.  Contingency plans help to control the damage after the problem happens.

Here’s wishing Toyota good luck in solving this problem.

I have been warning companies about this problem for a while now. There are lawyers ready to sue you for this and it can be very expensive financially and in terms of your reputation.

Mis-classifying employees as non-exempt is not the only way to fall into this trap.
