Brooke and Jordan Scherer lost their 9-year-old son Logan when a driver, who was texting and driving, smashed into the back of their car on 1-75. Logan died instantly.
"How many other people are going to have to die? How many Logan’s are going to have to suffer this same fate before someone takes a stand and says this is enough," says Logan's Mom, Brooke Scherer.
Logan's parents started "Living for Logan," group dedicated to ending distracted driving and banning texting behind the wheel.
The Scherers thought they finally had Tallahassee's attention about what's really going on, on roads we all share and the phones we all use. And at first they did, the bill passed the house, but then it got a death sentence in the state senate.
That death sentence came in the form of silence. The bill was never even heard in the State Senate.
Senator Rob Bradley heads up the appropriations committee, which decides how bills get funded and whether they see the light of day.
Senator Bradley was reportedly concerned the bill would lead to unfair pull overs and could allow law enforcement to peer into drivers' phones to determine whether they were texting.
