I don't think it's rocket science to see that more and more people every day have phones that text and that more and more will text while driving.
In the one clip I posted, it seems reading a map while driving is acceptable. I did almost wreck trying to zip my pants, though....
regards, Waddie As much as I am saddened by the many deaths involving guns, I am realistic in realizing more gun laws won't change this.

It's also something we could, I would think, prevent most of. It's quite obvious that left to grow this bad habit will grow.

In one I posted, it seems quite legal to be reading a map while driving.

If you are driving without a license or insurance they can impound the car.
Outstanding parking tickets can get your vehicle impounded. I would think talking while texting should bring penalties at least as heavy.
Folks were very exercised about more and more accidents happening while people talked on cell phones, but of course more and more people were talking on cell phones, so you'd expect more and more accidents to include them. Most people manage to have coffee while they drive, or even consume a sandwich. I don't see that as more attention diverting than talking to a passenger, or checking out a yard sale.
Did the accidents themselves go up--that's what I wanted to know. Couldn't a device determine if someone's texting from a moving car? Dialing a phone while driving is a really stupid thing to do; and dangerous. I'm surprised no one suggested banning cell phones yet.
It's probably illegal everywhere, but enforcement is lax.
