    I believe that texting while driving is akin to driving while impaired or at least reckless driving and should be treated accordingly.

    Even texting at a stoplight is dangerous if the car behind you is moving and expects you to move as soon as it turns green or turn with traffic. It would be the other driver’s fault — but is it really worth breaking your neck or lifelong back pains? Really – is it?

      I agree. Try texting or even talking on the phone while watching television. You will miss most of what’s happening on the TV. But these bozos think they can drive.

    When cell phones first came out way back when, I remember a quote from columnist Mike Rokyo of the Chicago Tribune. He said he would rather be on the road with a drunk driver than someone talking on their phone, at least the drunk is trying to drive.

    If drivers have a phone in one hand and a ticket in the other, doesn’t that mean they don’t have any hands on the wheel? {ducks}
