Good luck catching these people.
Can you really see down in to someones vehicle and see them texting while your driving?
If you can I'm more worried about you and your not paying attention.
I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
The very first car I ever had, I totaled because I was busy changing radio stations and rear ended the guy in front of me. I was given an inattentive driving ticket, learned my lesson, and the Congress of the US never had to try and ban radios from cars.

texting while driving is basically more dangerous than driving drunk and unlike drunk driving is completely unnecessary
i mean if you're drunk you must get home somehow but there is absolutely no need to send text messages from behind the wheel - you can either pull over to do it, or it can wait, or you can make a phone call using a speakerphone.
so yeah either texting from behind the wheel should be illegal or drunk driving should be legal.

Unless it's Jesse Ventura visiting the Mustang Ranch again.
States are still free to decline to enact such a law and thus choose to forego those funds.
It's not enforceable, but I do agree with it in principle. I've personally been in a car accident where the other driver was texting, and been on plenty of car rides where I've seen drivers swirving while they text. It's a stupid reason to jeopardize one's safety on the road.
Not everyone is that adept at multitasking. The law is for the stupid ones, not the skillful ones. But like I said, not really enforceable.
