Texting while driving is at least as bad if not worse, than driving under the influence of alcohol. At least a drunk can keep both hands on the steering wheel and both eyes on the road. Texting while driving should result in the automatic revocation of driving privileges.

Let's apply this fairly: No texting while driving. PERIOD. It really should be applied to the telephone or any distraction. I'm getting very tired of having my safety compromised by drivers texting and talking on the telephone.

Eye's on the road and both hands on the steering wheel, better safe than sorry.

Well you can't inforce any law if you don't have a police force. So all you folks that want to starve the government don't have a vote here and no room to complain.

How did "Plea Bargain Amy" ever get to be a senator? I mean really. Unbelievable. And no crap, texting and driving is bad. By the way, smoking, drinking, eating fast food is bad too. Please remember to wear your helmet while riding your bike....
