MARBLE FALLS, Texas (KXAN) - Tammie Dunn and her son Dallas, 2, frequently visit the two playgrounds at Johnson Park in Marble Falls .
The two playgrounds sit across from one another on a busy street.
Dunn said she has had close calls with her little boy darting into the street and almost getting hit by drivers who are not paying attention.
"It is really dangerous," explained Dunn. "They are on the phone all the time, they are texting and driving. It is crazy."
Dunn is behind the idea of a voluntary ban on cell phone use by motorists while driving around or parks, something that has been suggested by city leaders.
Under state law, cell phone use in school zones is already forbidden. Austin City Council has also made it illegal to text and drive anywhere in the city.
Warning signs could go up in area parks in the next few months if City Council members decide to push on with the idea.
Again, it would be a voluntary ban, meaning it is up to each individual driver to decide whether or not they are going to talk, text or check and write email on their phone while driving.
Dunn thinks motorists would likely take note and obey.
"It will get them thinking," Dunn added.
Many motorists admitted they wouldn't obey the sign, though they wouldn't go on camera to say it.
Journey Hays, 16, who can fall victim to the stereotype of a teen texter, said she would actually obey the sign.
"It is not safe to text while children are around," said Hays.
She also thinks Marble Falls natives would obey the sign if they actually see it and aren't too busy texting, talking or emailing, while behind the wheel when passing one by.
Light snow flurries were reported early Saturday just north of the KXAN viewing area. Sub-freezing temperatures along with a slight chance of light snow, sleet and freezing rain will continue through Sunday morning.
